Thread Name: Origins: Heather Down the Moor (from June Tabor)
Subject: RE: Tabor - Heather Down the Moor
It is highly possible that the information is correct Malcolm.
The earliest broadside I have been able to find is HARDING B11(2771) 1797 - 1834 which was Printed by Walker of Durham(North of England)
As we know , the oral tradition does produce different versions of songs
PS - Can the tune be traced at all?
