Subject: Lyr Req: The Hunger time
From: Susan-Marie

I half-remember a great song about surviving the winter that I thought was called "The Hunger Time" and sung by a Scot.

The heather is gone
And the bracken has died
Streams they run cold and clear
And the small birds will be goin'
And its then that you'll be knowin'
That the hunger time is here

Anyone know who wrote it and where I can find the rest of it?

The song I think you're looking for is Ewan MacColl's "The Terror Time"...it's in the DT, just put terror time in the search box.

Twenty minutes for a hard question - I'm duly impressed, Effsee.

I can't find an Ewan MacColl recording right off, but I found a very powerful recording by Jean Redpath.

Ah, Terror, not Hunger. That explains why I couldn't find it. Thanks so much guys.

The song comes from the Radio Ballad "The Travellers" (sometimes called "The Travelling People") it is just one of a number of classic pieces contained therein.
