Bob,

Pretty fascinating! THE TREASURE HUNT is what our trad side of this scene is truly all about. It simply felt just great to FIND a great old song that had escaped notice, put a good arrangement behind the tale within it, and SHOW IT to folks in our performances. Doing so-called "covers" (I really dislike the term) is seen as anathema to some these days. But mostly ALL TRAD SONGS ARE COVERS of what went before.

UncleDaveO,

You are correct. I'd forgotten that I put it on one of the Mudcat CDs. Thanks.
