GUEST,michaelr Origins: The Death of Queen Jane (Child #170) (22) RE: Tune Add: The Death of Queen Jane 03 Jan 14

It could be assumed that the Coen Brothers or their music coordinator, T-Bone Burnett, drew on the version by Bascom Lamar Lunsford ("the minstrel of the Appalachians") referenced above by Art Thieme. His 1953 Folkways LP Smokey Mt. Ballads would have been known to the Greenwich Village folk crowd. How and why Daithi Sproule's melody was chosen is a bit of a head-scratcher, though, if written in 1970.

Was Sproule credited as composer on the After Hours LP by his Skara Brae ex-bandmates Micheal and Triona O Dhomnaill?
