Subject: ballad search: words & lyrics wanted
From: Whit Jack e-mail housecow@webtv.net

I am trying to find the name, words, and music to a Scottish ballad I heard many years ago.

The best I can do to identify it is to paraphrase the one line I vaguely remember:

"And we'll all go together, Beneath the blooming heather, ........................................ You and me, bonny boy.

Thanks for any help you might give me. W. Jack Key West FL

A while back, someone posted the original words of the Scottish poem which were worked into the Irish version above.

SANDY PATON, head man at Folk Legacy Records, was the first person to ever record this song. It was on his first LP on Elektra---__The Many Sides of Sandy Paton__ A great record even though Sandy seems not to like it at all. Fred Hellerman's, of Weavers fame, uptown guitar was pretty much forced on Sandy for this LP---but, with that said, to my ears it has always been a great recording. This was issued back in 1959 I think.

Is Sandy's recording still available? I don't recall seeing it on Folk Legacy's catalog. I'd love to hear him sing it! He and Caroline were the first Real Live Folk Singers I ever heard. The rest is history!

I think you'll find that the McPeakes recorded it in about 1956, if not earlier. Old Francie McPeake is usually credited with re-creating it from a garbled Ulster version of Scot Robert Tannahill's original Braes of Balquidder. In more recent years his family have stated that he made the whole thing himself, but families have a habit of making such claims on behalf of their dear departed ones. I expect Sandy Paton learned it when in the UK in the late 50s, when it was first massively popular. Sandy Paton is sometimes credited with teaching Jeannie Robertson the tune she sang for Lord Lovel.

SORRY FOLKS!!!

I meant to say that Sandy was the first person in the U.S.A. to record "Wild Mountain Thyme".

THE MANY SIDES OF SANDY PATON-------Elektra 148

I had Sandy sign it for me several years ago when I was recording for Folk Legacy. His inscription said, "Art---It seems that the sins of one's past eventually catch up. No escaping for the wicked !

Sandy Paton

Songs:
Capt.Wedderburn's Courtship, The Wee Magic Stane, Katy Cruel, An Auld Man, The Overgate, Twa Heids, Auld Maid In A Garrett (Wi A Parrot), Wee Croodlin' Doo, Daily Growin', Byker Hill, Foggy Dew, Comin' Home From The Wake, Wild Mountain Thyme, The Beggin' Tongue, I Never Go To Work, Childrens Songs

The cover is a beaut. I first heard Sandy in '59 at one of the Sunday afternoon hoots at the Gate Of Horn in Chicago. The house band was a highschool kid named Jim McGuinn on guitar(later to be Roger), Louie McDonald (a postal worker) and John Carbo on banjo.John later edited the BLUES BROTHERS film.

It's really strange about the two songs.."Wild Mountain Thyme" is a really pretty song, and much better suited to shared singing...and much easier to sing. .....but I still like the mood and feeling of 'Braes o' Balquidder'...too bad it is so seldom done and so little recognized anymore.

Mr. McPeake bestowed a mixed blessing on us with his re-working...
