Thread Name: Lyr Req: fiddler's green - different version
Subject: RE: fiddler's green - different version
I've been singing John Conolly's "Fiddler's Green" for at least 30 years. John is a lovely bloke from South Humberside who has written a vast number of superb songs - "Punch & Judy Man", "Ranter's Wharf" and many others - some with his mate Bill Meeks. Recently when he'd sung a couple of new songs which Linda and I loved, he sent us a CD (not an issued one) with them on - free of charge.
There is also a morris dance parody of "Fiddler's Green" on DT HERE by Robot Nim (Herga Morris) - although the original beer mentioned was "Watney's Red Barrel" (now happily no longer obtainable).
Perhaps there should be a few more of John and Bill's songs on DT.
