Eddie was the fiddler in Coventry 30+ years ago. A heroic toper in those days, he could play The Mason's Apron, The Fourposter Bed, and The Orangeblossom Special when he was falling-down drunk, and still make a top job of it. Oh, and the Hen's March to the Midden, too.

You'd be right not to place much reliance in the lyrics, though. They tend to sing 'their' way, and folk-process the songs.

I've only heard them on record since then.
