Hi all,

I have written and produced a 3-part podcast looking at the history of the song The Wild Rover and thought that some Mudcatters might be interested in giving it a listen. Here is the description to the first part: 'The Wild Rover Part I looks at the historical and sociological background of 17th century England; a culture which gave rise to a body of song known as the Alehouse Ballads. It was from this group of ballads that the song which was to become the Wild Rover emerged from in the year 1678. Featuring performances from Cormac Dermody, Adrian Edwards, Paul Denman, Beanie Entwistle, Joe Yorke, Radie Peat and Marshall Morris the Travelling Woodsman of the Fosseway. Do yourself a favour and check out Brian Peters' 2015 article The Well-Travelled 'Wild Rover' Folk Music Journal Vol. 10, No. 5 (2015), pp. 609-636, which I relied on heavily while creating this podcast.'
