Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Wren in the Furze (Chieftains)
Subject: RE: wren in the furze
Bobby Bob - you mean there is acutally a folk scene on the island? My husband and I spent a week there in June/July 1995 looking for music, and found nothing, not even in the pub that had it advertised outside!!! We got so bored, that our daughter was .... 'started' there!! We were very worried that she was going to have three legs and glow in the dark, because it was during one of the worst thunderstorms you'd had for decades - it started at about 9.00pm and was still rumbling around at 5.30 the next morniong!! The attendant at Peel Castle said he'd not had rain like it since he left Malaysia in 1946!

For other stories connected with the wren and the hunt have a look at the Lyr req. thread for 'The Chieftains, The Wren' which I saw first and submitted to.
