I'm sorry to have missed hearing Pete sing this at the Bothy, but I'll probably see him at Whitby and get the new CD as well. Re-reading this thread is a bit saddening as two of the contributors have since died:- Malcolm Douglas, and Karen Kobela (karen k) and they are both greatly missed.
Anyway it is great that Pete Coe is keeping this song going; I sang it myself for a while, but Pete will be a better force at giving it a wider circulation. I'd be interested to know if he has found any more about the background and history of the song.
It would be great to see you at the Belvedere again soon, Clive.
