Welcome to the "Too Many Cooks Sessions"! We are going to spoil your broth with richly over-accompanied folk songs, and fuse what for centuries was "local/regional/national" (here).

First up, we have Chuck Stewart to sing "I Am Boating," accompanied by Scottish Highland pipes, American lap-steel, Italian fiddle and mandolin, French piano accordion, Spanish guitar, English high- and low-whistle, German transverse flute, Greek bouzouki, keyboards, bass, and drum kit (we were going to have a clarsach player, but she became concerned about cutting through THE mix, and got cold trans-Atlantic feet)...

Better to boomerang "The White Heather Club", I think, Dave!

Well here's my vote for Too Many Cooks.

Before I realised it was even a folk song: Jah Wobbles Blacksmith - from which I also learned to sing it, albeit without the fabulous multi-instrumental backing..

Don't know about your singing, Crow Sister, but, frankly, I'd much rather hear that same good folkie-female-voice WITHOUT the accompaniment.

In the latest Session shown on the BBC, one participant said, lightheartedly:

"I suppose we have a million musicians, so they are trying to place them all. I think they are finding it hard to get them all in. I might just sing acapella."...many a true word said in jest?
