Subject: Ballads at Morpeth Tomorrow
From: GUEST,Suibhne Astray

The Morpeth Gathering kicks off today (details on-line if you don't already know), but Rapunzel & I will be leading a singaround tonight in The Alley, The Queen's Head at 8.00pm.

Tomorrow we'll be taking part in a concert of Border Music at the Chantry at 4.00pm. This features the masterful piping of MAT SEATTLE alongside a set of Border Ballads both Spooky & Otherwise Exciting from Rapunzel & Myself (including our reworking of my 1985 setting of THE WEE WEE MAN (Child #38) which can listen to HERE from yesterday's rehearsal session).

Also tomorrow TWILIGHT TALES with storytelling, ballad singing and general misrule from myself, Rapunzel and Jim Grant in The Millenium Garden at 7.30. This is always a cracking event but being MAY EVE (Beltane, The Even of Walpurgis etc.) you can expect a particularly spooky evening!

Hope to see you there - Sedayne.

Efforts, eh? Well, the Border Music gig was heaving - 50+ eager (paying) punters, young & old, folkie and non-folkie, packed into the Morpeth Chantry at 4pm on a blistering Saturday afternoon to listen attentively to an hour of unrelenting pipe tunes and balladry - A Border Tapestry indeed - heavy on drones both cauld wind, bowed and electronic - which became a Travelogue with Matt's stories of the Eildon Hills and Thomas of Ercildoune (and milk white steeds at Carterhaugh) thence to Norham on the Tweed for Binnorie using the version given in the Northumbrian Minstrelsy; Earl Brand likewise. Rapunzel truncated Tam Lin to cut to the chase, but otherwise all we lost was the odd verse here and there...

Here's that Soundcloud link again: Child #38 : THE WEE WEE MAN (

I always miss out on the Morpeth comps what with the one thing & the other (though I was awarded first prize for my Green Man Processional Garb the first year I wore it). So how was it? What did you sing?

Just put a couple of ballads up on our Soundcloud page from the rehearsal session for the above Morpeth gig: The Wax Baby (aka Willie's Lady, Witch Mother) and Tam Lin - 19-minutes in total.

We've got a ballad & storytelling session at Fylde this year too. More anon!
