GUEST,Lighter Lyr Req: Battle of the Somme (50) RE: Lyr Req: Battle of the Somme 31 Jul 17

> "Battle of the Somme" entered the consciousness of English folk musicians via the Albion Band.

The Ian Campbell Folk Group recorded it far earlier on their album "Contemporary Campbells" (1966 - or '65, according to some).

If memory serves, Dave Swarbrick - who played it - learned it from his violin teacher.
