How Jeannie Robertson picked up songs from her family.
Jeannie Robertson learned many songs as a child from her mother, who would often sing in the evenings while waiting for her husband and sons to return home. Jeannie's mother's brother, Willie Stewart, would sometimes also join them; he was a good singer with many songs. Mention of Jeannie passing songs on to her daughter, Lizzie Higgins, and 'Wee Froggie' [Isaac Higgins].
