Peak in sub-genre #12
A combination of an Israeli song about King David and a traditional English song, 'Sally Free and Easy'.
Peak in sub-genre #84
A quasi-dance version of a traditional immigrants/pirates song.
Peak in sub-genre #74
A high energy version of this Scottish song which has been recorded by Martin Carthy twice, but is probably better known as the second half of the original version of 'Matty Groves' by Fairport Convention.
Peak in sub-genre #21
What would Vaughan Williams think?
Peak in sub-genre #23
Learnt from Steeleye Span's version. This begins in a stately 9/8 before moving to a jocular 4/4.
Peak in sub-genre #26
An offbeat (literally) version of the song which started the folk-rock revolution of 1969.
Peak in sub-genre #28
This traditional Scottish lament is given the 'folktronix' treatment. I approached this in the manner of a jazz standard: once around the 'head', once improvising over the chord changes, and once repeating the head.
Peak in sub-genre #46
An iconoclastic and irreverent romp through two English Morris tunes ( 'Sheriff's Ride' and 'Princess Royal'), featuring violent syncopation and mode changes.
Peak in sub-genre #22
A traditional Scottish tune given a non-traditional arrangement. Check out the soundtrack to the film, 'Local Hero', for another version. This is a newly mixed version of the track.
Peak in sub-genre #16
The first version I heard of this song was instrumental, so I assumed that it was indeed a tune without any words. I was very surprised when I heard a street singer in Covent Garden sing it with words!
