Chris Seymour 'Historical' Ballads (146* d) RE: 'Historical' Ballads 18 Oct 99

Aragon Mill is by the southern US singer-songwriter Si Kahn, but Planxty recorded it and I'd guess someone in Ireland adapted their version with new lyrics. The folk process is a wonderful thing.

This thread began with a list of ballads including "Montrose" as sung by Steeleye Span. I used to wonder a lot about that song -- who it was about, what was the history, etc. Didn't follow up at the time, but seeing as we're on the subject, anybody know anything about that one?
