Thread Name: Origin: Fire Maringo (chantey)
Subject: Background on Song/Chanty Fire Meringo
This morning Jeri, Bat Goddess, Curmudgeon and I were discussing the history and background of Fire Meringo. Here is what we have so far.

Royston Wood of the Young Tradition wrote the tune. Some of the words in the song come from Hugil but they are included in the introduction and the author states that the tune is lost.

What else can the Mudcat come up with for this gem?
