Frequently Asked Questions
Why are some tune names different than the names listed on the CD liner notes?
Traditional tunes are often known by several different names, and often there are variations in the exact wording and spelling of any one name. To make it more evident when a tune appears on multiple recordings, I have chosen a preferred name for each tune and used the preferred tune name in the recording tune lists. My choice of a preferred name is often arbitrary (although I follow some naming conventions), and may even be incorrect. In rare cases, tunes are misidentified on recordings. If I know a name to be incorrect, I will avoid using it as the preferred name of the tune, but there may be cases where the error is not apparent to me.
