Subject: Waterson:McCarthy with Saul Rose song
Can anyone help me out with this, it's driving me nuts. I recently saw Waterson:McCarthy play with Saul Rose, and they did a song which made the hair on my neck stand up but I've not been able to track it down. I don't remember the name of the song and they don't seem to have recorded their version. All I remember is that it's about a girl who drowns in a mill-pond, I think, and a musician comes along and makes a fiddle out of her bones-using the breast-bone for the body, her hair for the bow-strings, fingerbones for pegs, that kind of thing. I'm pretty sure it was their own arrangement of a trad thing, but I cannot find any version of it anywhere and I'd really like to. Anyone tell me anything about it?
