Subject: Origins: Ballad of the Five Continents - Bob Pegg|
Date: 16 Oct 14 - 12:49 PM
There's a song on the Transatlantic Folk Collection called "The Ballad of the Five Continents" sung by Bob and Carole Pegg. The lyrics are reminiscent of Dylan Thomas's style ("In blue Bristol city at tall-tide I wandered...") and it quotes Charles Causley's poem "Envoi" at the end. Does anyone know the history of this song? There's no information that I can find online, not even on Bob Pegg's website.
