THE NORTH COUNTRY TRADGEDY , by Craig Johnson, is in the Digital Tradition. It begins,

Come all you Christian people who travel in the north
Who load your Winnebagos and boldly sally forth,
We left the hills of Bloomfield in the merry month of June
And crossed the straits of Mackinaw while the eight track played a tune.

To burn the Town and drive us.

Geoff, one more for the evolution list: Chris Smither sings ORIGIN OF SPECIES , https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jOxgiq6c6_E

Includes this:

Well, Charlie Darwin looked so far
Into the way things are
He caught a glimpse of God's
Unfolding plan

God said: "I'll make some DNA"
They can use it any way they want
From paramecium
Right up to man."

First stanza of THE GOLDEN TRIANGLE, written by Hank Card, goes

The Gulf breeze was blowing those sweet petrochemical fumes.
I was hauling a truckload of cattle through Texas in June.
The cattle were thirsty and calling for brew.
Abnormally sober, I wanted one, too.
I left I-10 at Beaumont to look for an open saloon.

There is a version of BALLINDERRY (Bonny Ram's Island) with the verse

O. lonely I wander on bonny Church Island
Far, far away from Phelimy Diamond
The birds may whistle a merry tune,
But sorrowful May brought woeful June.


I add it to a different version, so I sing Bonny Ram's Island rather than Church Island.

THE RUSHCART SONG by Mike Waterson

Cut the rushes, pile them high
Stack them ‘til they reach the sky
Silver gardening the eye???
Oh we are all rushcarters

All dressed out in flowers so gay
On this bright sunshiny day
Come we will, if come we may
Oh we are all rushcarters

We are not rich, we are not poor
We do not beg from door to door
You have seen us all before
We are all rushcarters

Through the village, up and down
Dancing round and round the town
Suits??? go twirling round and round
We are all rushcarters

Dance we did in days of yore
Like our fathers did before
We will dance for evermore
We are all rushcarters

Recorded by Mike Waterson with Eliza Carthy, Norma Waterson and Martin Carthy in their studio in Robin Hood's Bay.

Two lines uncertain - suggestions welcome.

One of the sources I found was the Northern Broadsides Education Rersource Pack.

https://www.northern-broadsides.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/An-August-Bank-Holiday-Lark-Education-Pack.pdf

Education Pack

I couldn't find a complete script on line, but copied the verses that I could find. (The script is for sale on the Northern Broadsides website.)

But I have found a video with Mike Waterson singing his song! The words are slightly different but a little indistinct.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kLY1QFg2KDU

The Northern Broadsides theatre company is well known for performing Shakespeare in northern English accents - which may well be closer to the English Shakespeare spoke than the Received Pronunciation of today.

henryp, what you wrote on Mike Waterson's Rushcart Song looks like a quote. Where is it from? As it stands it's completely out of context; what are 'those traditions' An August Bank Holiday Lark draws on? (And it took me some googling to understand that Lark is a play.)

Mike Waterson's last song

An August Bank Holiday Lark draws on those traditions. Remarkably rehearsals have been divided equally between work on the text and Conrad Nelson's work on the music and dancing.

Barry Rutter writes, "My friend, the late great Mike Waterson, was one of the doyens of English folk. I met him when he was dying and I said, ‘Do you want to write me a song for 2014?'. He said, ‘I won't see 2014 – I'm dying.'

I said, ‘I know you are, but I'd like you to write a Rushcart Song.' So he wrote it and recorded it with Eliza Carthy, Norma Waterson and Martin Carthy in their studio in Robin Hood's Bay. Conrad's taken that song and incorporated it into the play.

St. John's Eve, 24 June, is mentioned in a Spanish ballad,"ROMANCE DEL CONDE OLINOS" (The Ballad of Count Olinos)

Madrugaba el Conde Olinos mañanita de San Juan
a dar agua a su caballo, a las orillas del mar.

(Count Olinos rose early on Saint John's Day* morning
To water his horse by the sea side.)

See Monique's post of 2 May 2022 (message #177?)

Another Spanish song for St. John's eve is AL PASAR EL TRÉBOLE    https://www.mamalisa.com/?lang=Spanish&t=es&p=3023 about jumping over the St. John's eve bonfire.

similar midsummer customs are found in northern Europe as well, so there must be losts of songs associated with St. John's Eve.

And of June the thirteenth day,
That our gallant ship her anchor weighed,
And for Greenland bore away, brave boys,
