Seven and a half minutes of unaccompanied loveliness from my Missus. I am completely biased (and a bit sad) but I just love this. Annachie Gordon (Child 239) - live at Beverley Folk Festival last weekend.


Wendy Arrowsmith - Annachie Gordon

Just thought I'd share!

A lovely performance!

Sang this version myself in Beverley yesterday.
It's one of my favourites.

Absolutely wonderful! I am so glad you put this on YouTube and posted a clicky here. I have been craving traditional music. I had the CD that Wendy referred to, but it disappeared during a 3-month hospitalization in 2003. All I came home with was the empty case. I have other recordings of the song, but I don't think any of them are a cappella. I see that you have put other videos of Wendy on YouTube and will be listening to them as soon as possible.

"and you who are her maidens, come loosen up her gown"

I still think that is the most disturbing line I've ever heard in a traditional (or possibly any) song. ...... given the context of a father preparing his daughter for rape. Gives me the shivers!

She's on at The Black Swan in York on July 14th, if your part of Yorkshire is anywhere near there.

I am indeed female (and married, too, BTW). I'm (usually) in Sheffield -- so not too far from York -- but am in the US visiting family at the moment, so the swim is more than I'm up for right now; maybe another time...

A lot of folks seem to think Yorkshire Yankee sounds like a guy's nick. I picked it because I'm a Yank living in Yorkshire, so it seemed a logical choice (& had a bit of a ring to it, which I liked).

(Don't mean to hijack the thread, but I thought it might be a good idea to explain things more fully...)

Cheers!

P.S.
"Guest", who are you? (Just curious...)

Well MRS Yankee, please accept my full and sincere apologies for changing your gender.

I'm really quite embarrassed now. Hopefully we might catch you somewhere down the road!

Paul

Well, I have to say that I'm not generally a great lover of Child Ballads - I prefer 2 minute long bits of fluff from the 1920s (just my attention span) - but this performance was beautiful - superb.

Well done, Mrs. Wendy Arrowsmith Banjiman!!

Thanks will. That's a real compliment from you.

Funny actually, the thing we're just putting finishing touches to now is "Wildwood Flower", definitely a bit of fluff, definitely 1920's (well The Carter Family version) ..... and difficult to stretch to 2 minutes!
