Thread Name: Five Penny/Fivepenny Piece (English Folk Group)
Subject: RE: Five Penny Piece
"Bowton's yard" was a much earlier poem. I first heard it from a friend, recited in dialect. I've got a book of fivepenny piece's songs somewhere, and I'll dig it out if you don't find the songs elsewhere. I saw the band perform a few times, as I was born and brought up in Manchester. Hwyl.
