Scrump Priceless video of Carthy & Swarbrick (25) RE: Priceless video of Carthy & Swarbrick 16 Mar 07


Glad to have it confirmed, Murray, and that my ears are better than I thought :-)

I agree it would sound odd in Carthy's famous alternative tuning. Might be interesting to try it though :-)

Btw, does anyone know who wrote the song? I know it from Peter Sellers (his was accompanied solely by uke, played by himself I believe) and Clinton Ford's versions, but I believe it dates back to the early 20th century. Anyone know any more about its history?
