Larry LongGrandma's Penny SaleRun For FreedomFlying

Yesterday I read a news item that really struck me.  It reminded me that, despite the happy talk from our government, we really are in hard times that rival the so-called Great Depression of the 30's.  The news item was about how a farm in Ireland was being auctioned, and how the local community banded together to prevent the farm sale: they showed up at the auction, and refused to bid.  This is something that used to happen in this country in the 30's, and probably hasn't happened since.  Here's the link to the story:

Time To Reclaim The Land That Is Rightfully Ours

Ireland invented the boycott during the land wars, and perhaps it is time to take this effective weapon of resistance down from the thatch to deal with repossessions and resales Despite the spiralling economic crisis we are in, there was, last week, an epiphany at a small auction in Co Meath.

A 67-acre farm in Crossakiel, which had been repossessed by ACC bank, was up for sale. Despite a reasonable attendance by local farmers at the auction, there was only one derisory bid of €1.

There was, according to some present, ‘‘an atmosphere’’ in the room, and the auctioneer later told the Irish Times that ‘‘there was no question but that people weren’t bidding because it was being sold by the bank’’.

This reminded me of a song by Larry Long, a songwriter out of Oklahoma, called "Grandma's Penny Sale."  It was the last cut that I played this morning.

By the way, the story about the Irish farm sale came to my attention via a blog I follow called The Automatic Earth.

Knowing that my friend Jon was coming down from Seattle to co-host, I struggled to decide on what to play... finally it hit me: we'll play folk artists of the 60's.  After all, he was there in the thick of it: he saw many of these artists play, and socialized with a good many of them!  We had a good time.

Some notes on the songs from this year's Spooky show...

Anne Boleyn was unfortunate in being one of King Henry VIII's wives; this song was written in 1934 by R.P. Weston and Bert Lee.

Molly Bon appears in many collections under slightly different names like Lucy Wan, Molly Wan, etc.  In each, the poor dead girl returns to defend her lover in court.

Thomas Rhymer appears in Sir Francis Child's collection of ballads as #37, and tells the tale of an unfortunate encounter with the Fairy Queen.  She gives an apple that causes his tongue to never lie, and spirits him away for seven years.

This long version of Lady Margaret from Irene Saletan is a true classic night visiting song.  The dead lover comes back to his maid, and takes her through the churchyard to his grave.

The Nightingale is a sea version of a night visiting song; the parents don't approve of the match, and have the press gang take the young man off to sea.  He dies and his ghost comes back to tell the woman how her parents betrayed him.

Death & the Lady is a little morality tale about how beauty and riches cannot forestall an appointment with the Grim Reaper.

A Most Unpleasant Way, Sir tells the tale of someone who meets a young man with a gruesome bird on his arm.  By the end of the conversation the bird has transferred to the visitor's arm, and now he must find a new host... is it you?

Peter Bellamy sings a version of The Cruel Ships Carpenter, in which a young man lures a woman to her death and then thinks to escape by going to sea.  However, the ghost pursues him, and eventually shreds him before his shipmates.

Another tale in which the young woman wins out in the end is The Maid on the Shore.  She is a lovely creature, but beware taking her on board, for she will sing you to sleep and steal your wealth.

The Lancashire Witches is an affectionate song about the feminimity of witches in Lancashire.

Auntie Ketyll tells of the lengths a woman will go, to the extent of making a pact with the Devil, to protect her man in battle.  Alas, it is all in vain, for she makes a mistake in the charm.

Archie Fisher wrote the Witch of the West-Mer-Land using traditional themes.

The Wife of Usher's Well tells the tale of three young sons sent off to learn magic ("grammaree").  They fall victim to some disease, and come home to say good-bye.  Hedy West's banjo accompaniment is outstanding on this cut.

A. L. Lloyd discovered The Bloody Gardener in a Vauxhall Gardens songbook from the 1770's.

Michael Cooney's version of Lady Isabel and the Elf Knight sticks very close to the traditional story line, and his banjo work is also very fine.

The False Knight on the Road tells the story of a small innocent child standing up to the Devil; she counters every one of his proclamations with poise and grace.

We finish up with Mysterious Mose, covered here by the Cheap Suit Serenaders.

Membership drive: play good, no, GREAT music!


Great program this morning

We really enjoyed this mornings program.  Great music and starts the day well.  Thanks.

4th of July

Thanks for the Gina Forsyth tune. Hadn't heard it before; it's great!

Fri 9-17-10 show

Hi Kurt,


Heard some very nice classical sounding guitar this morning around 6am.  I think you said it was Joe Vega or Mabus?  Unsure.  It was a live performance from 1980? at a place called the 10 pound fiddle?

Hope that is enough information to find out who that was and what song they played. 



Hi, maybe you'd like our music...


I really like you show.  I wish there were a whole station devoted to this kind of music.  2 things you might be interested in:

First, my band, Mistral ( just finished a CD of Breton and French folk music, adding a couple English folk ballads.  I'd like to send you a demo if you're interested. 

I'm part of the Bridgetown Morris Men.  We perform traditional English Morris dancing.  After practice, we go out and do a weekly pub sing, currently located at the Green Dragon on 9th and Belmont, Wednesday at about 9:15pm.  The Brit Folk show was right up our alley!

-Ian Clemons

What was the last song played

What was the last song played Friday morning, February 5, 2010?  It was a song with a line repeating (I think), "I'll go to sea no more", sung by a very familiar voice.  It was such a beautiful arrangement, but when I do a search on those words, I get a song quite different from what I heard this a.m.  Thanks so much.  Carol

playlist question


     Who performed the song "Let's have Christmas in January" which you played around 6:58 AM on Friday 12/18? They Might be Giants? Anyway, my sentiments exactly. Thanks for the music.


Playlist question

Would love to know the name of the song played at approx 6:45 this morning. Woman was wrapping about bomb shelters and marijuana in tupperware(!). Thanks.

Loved today's program

Fundamental cracks in the foundations of our world and society are rarely brought up in conversation, let alone in the media -- and to hear problems of class divisions and despair talked about in such an unscripted and heartfelt way made today's Lark in the Morning broadcast a particular treat.

Keep up the good work!
