  • Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick singing "I haven't told her, she hasn't told me". Enchanting clip, bit of a curiosity, it's not exactly "Byker Hill", but rivetting nonetheless
  • The Copper Family just a fragmentary clip of the Coppers singing "Thousands or More", but the only online clip available at present, unfortunately...
  • Traditional shanty sung by the men who actually do go to sea. (thanks to Azizi for this one, I would never have found it by myself)
  • "Dives and Lazarus" sung by a Finnish singer. It doesn't get much more cosmopolitan than this. I just wish Martin Simpson would allow some of his videos to appear on here, including his rendition of this song.
  • "Torn Screen Door" (that's the song title). obviously not traditional, but I feel it fits comfortably in the English traditional category. Nice acapella singing.
