Subject: Robin Hood Night, Lewes 19 May
From: Valmai Goodyear
Date: 15 May 12 - 08:03 AM

On Saturday 19th. May the Lewes Saturday Folk Club in Sussex, England, has an evening on the theme of 'Robin and the merry greenwood'. We will be singing songs & ballads of Robin Hood & general woodland activities (poaching, nutting, hunting, disposal of by-products of crime, al fresco how’s your father, etc.) We also suggest wearing something green.

Bring songs and tunes on the theme. If you'd like to reserve one and be sure of not getting pipped at the post, let me know.

Those chosen so far are:

Robin Hood & the Curtal Friar
Robin Hood & the Bishop of Hereford
Willie & Earl Richard's Daughter
Death of Robin Hood
Robin Hood Was a Forester Good

We;ll be joined by some of the people attending the Tradsongs Forum in Lewes that day.

Valmai (Lewes)

It's gonna be a long night.
Is nobody gonna sing The Gest?

Have a goodun. Wish I could be there but it's a long way and there's a lot of preparation needed for the Royal Pageant now.

Tig, is that the 'Robin Hood, Robin Hood, Riding Through The Glen' song?

Robin Hood, Little John and Maid Marian were strongly associated with the traditional May Games, so songs about Maying would also be appropriate. 'Hal An Tow' mentions Robin.
