FTX-310 A-ROVING BRITAIN AND IRELAND

with Peter Kennedy

A catchy Irish drinking song sets the scene - which takes us into the heart of the Yorkshire dales - to meet the original lass of Richmond hill - and some of the country dances peculiar to the area - moving to North-East Scotland and a melodeon-playing melodeon-mending molecatcher of Moray - further north still and we hear massed fiddle music from both Orkney and Shetland - on the way - calling in on the island of Sark - some Gaelic next - not from Scotland or Ireland but from the Isle of Man - one song, a girl in love with a sailor, from four different groups of travellers - tinkers and gypsies from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales with our final drinking song from a cider-loving Dorset shepherd.
