Thread Name: 400 Anniversary Gun Powder Plot - Songs?
Subject: RE: 400 Anniversary Gun Powder Plot - Songs?
Caught up with this thread a bit late - for this year, anyway.

Thanks Shieldslad for the words of Cob-a-Coaling. I've been thinking of learning it for a while but not got round to it. I went hot-foot to find my copy of Frost and Fire - though I didn't remember Cob-a-Coaling being on there and it wasn't.

Apparently it was recorded for Frost and Fire but left off cos there wasn't room. It is on "Voices; English Traditional Songs" Fellside 1991 which - whoopee! - I have as well. It's also on the Watersons 4CD anthology "Mighty River of Song".

Now all I've got to do is remember where to find it next year.
