Weasel Books I sing songs...about dead people (64* d) RE: I sing songs...about dead people 03 Feb 05


How could I forget the Cruel Sister (or Twa Sisters, etc) when the jealous sister pushes the younger into the water, who drowns (or is murdered by a miller). A minstrel walks by and makes a harp out of her breastbone, stringing it with strands of her golden hair. It then sings out against the sister!
Best ones I think are Old Blind Dogs, Pentangle, and Jody Stecher. Go to the latter's website, I don't know how to do a blue-clicky, and there you'll find a lovely illustration.
