    Folk music on Youtube

    Having spent part of yesterday at the Poole Quay Folk Festival, thought it about time we had some Folk Music here, (one or two tracks on the last may not quite be true folk

    In Bills own words

    In case you're wondering, I recorded the audio on my Korg D888 8-track digital recorder, so I could sing harmony with myself. I was inspired to learn this song after listening to Hayley Westenra.

    Well if the folk on youtube, which is plenty of in there, then the great band called Melnitsa, I guess, not sure of a spelling actually, to be more up to date here is one of the songs:


    And also the same person performed the translated version of the WarBringers form the WoW commercial:

    Here's an Appalachian song on YouTube, 'Hangman', sung by Jean Ritchie. (There's a British variant of this story, a folk song called 'The Prickly Bush'. I remember hearing it first at my university's Folk Song Club when I was 18, and I've loved it ever since.)

    Here's another song that I heard for the first time (and till just now, the last time) at my university's Folk Club, almost fifty years ago now. It's got a wonderful tune that may be modal in origin - gives me gooseflesh. And that's just when the Corries sing it - at my Uni's Folk Club Session, it was sung unaccompanied by a handsome lad with a beautiful (tenor) voice.



    Edit - I just found another version, by The Watersons - by The Very Young Watersons, in fact!
    This is very Yorkshire and very gorgeous.

    Two versions of an old song reflecting the era they were sung in.

    First Pentangle form 1968, Brutish revival folk in its pomp _ John Renbourn, Bert Jansch and Jacqui McShee


    Then an up and coming folk group from 2016 - Lady Maisery - a close harmony group like the Watersons but with a modern twist

    Hamish Henderson was one of the stalwarts of the folk revival. He also served in the 51st Highland Division. Here is one of his songs to a pipe tune


    Two of his known songs are the Freedom Come All Ye and John McLean's March.

    'Fasten the Legging' - a nice bit of Irish traditonal music (ITM) played here on the banjo.
    Only three months till St Patrick's Day.

    I read today (on another music forum that I belong to) that the Donegal fiddler Vincent Campbell died on the second of this month (December 2018).

    Here's a strathspey - in Donegal, called 'a highland' - from a video that someone posted on his mourning thread.
    It's lovely.

    Rest in peace. I hope there are fiddles in heaven.

    This carol popped into my head, and I found this lovely version on YouTube. Okay, it's a bit late - although the Medieval Christmas lasted until February 2nd, Candlemas Day, the feast day of the Presentation in the Temple.

    The late Peter Bellamy - what a fantastic idiosyncratic voice he had:
