The Bramble and the Rose
November 18, 2008 |
A couple listeners wrote in to identify the author of GK and Andra Suchy's duet of "The Bramble and the Rose" (listen | watch video).
On PHC this week you said you "Wish you knew who wrote this song," the Bramble and the Rose. According to Jody Stecher and Kate Brislin's CD "Our Town," it was written by Barbara Keith. It's a great CD, by the way, and I highly recommend it. Enjoyed the show.
Post to the Host:
I enjoyed arrangement of "The Bramble And The Rose" which Garrison mentioned that he wished he had written. It was written many years ago by Barbara Keith from Greenfield Massachusetts, a prolific song writer and performer who, along with her husband Doug Tibbles and his son John Tibbles, make up the group The Stone Coyotes.
