GUEST,henryp Question on a TWO SISTERS song (18) RE: ? on a TWO SISTERS song 25 Nov 17


They'll never believe it's true (Andy Irvine / Steve Cooney) (Andy Irvine)

In the notes for his CD Way Out Yonder, Andy Irvine writes;

This was meant to be a song called The Two Sisters that I found in a Cecil Sharp collection many years ago.

I’d always been a bit irked that some people, who recorded it subsequently, had seemingly not known that the tune – and some of the words – were mine. The bit about Boiled in Lead for instance.

However when we put the backing track down, Steve was entranced by it and decided it was Faerie Music. We bandied around ideas for a week or two and one morning, when I woke up, this song greeted me! Needless to say not ALL of it is true…
