Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Werewolf (from R & B Dransfield)
Subject: RE: Lyrics to Werewolf?
Barry, the Dransfield brothers, Robin and Barry, are British folk-revival musicians who started recording in the 70's. Barry Dransfield is a great fiddle and cello player who has also recorded several solo albums without his brother. The Werewolf is one of their written songs, and is on a recently released CD compilation of their work on the Free Reed label, called "Up to Now". It's a mix of acoustic and British folk-rock stuff; I really like it, but I also love Fairport and The Albion Band. I got the CD from Wally Macnow at Camsco, here's his listing of the album and the tracks on it: camsco
and here's Free Reed Records more detailed description of it:Free Reed

I'll check the album when I get home and see if they have the lyrics to The Werewolf written out; I don't think they did, though...

I also bought one of Barry's (the multiplicity of Barrys is confusing, Barry) solo albums, The Wings of the Sphinx, on Rhiannon Records,RHYD 5010, released 1996; I got it as an expensive British import at our local folk store, House of Musical Traditions. It's mostly acoustic, and entirely fantastic (I'm just a little enthusiastic here).

By the way, are you part of Finn and Haddie? Will you be at the NOMAD festival in Newtown, CT in November? My husband and I are going up to do a few workshops there; we're also applying for NEFFA in the spring, so hope we can say hi in person some time...
