. . . so I thought I’d share some of my current listening pleasures with you.
Let’s start with a slow one. This is Steeleye Span with the classic ‘The Elf Knight‘, which goes way back to pre-medieval times. (The lyrics are here, if you need them.)
Fairport Convention is another English folk rock group, contemporaries of Steeleye Span. Here’s their performance of the nineteenth-century ‘Seventeen Come Sunday‘. (Lyrics here.)
Here’s Steeleye Span again with the classic ‘Sir James the Rose‘. They rock this one! (Lyrics here.)
Finally, here’s Fairport Convention with a modern composition by Ralph McTell that’s profoundly moving; ‘Red and Gold‘. (Lyrics here.)
I hope you enjoyed them as much as I do.
