People - Robert French, Singer

Robert French was one of Sister Poulin’s main sources of folksongs. He learned a large portion (if not all) of the songs he knew from his grandfather, a lumberman and singer from the glory days of the Maine woods, as a teenager. Like his grandfather, Robert French went to work in the woods, but due to some sort of injury he was forced to retire early from woods work.
