GUEST,Officer Bollix Geordie mining song translation please! (19) RE: Geordie mining song translation please! 30 Mar 15


I reckoned it was a Hampshire; you say Saddleback. I defer, having never kept pigs, though it remains a dream. Off course there are no Belted Galloway pigs - but that's what the Pinterest page labels it!

As an erstwhile pig-man on a folk forum, I'm guessing you'll know M'Gintie's Meal an' Ale? It's another one not to be attempted without a glossary but well worth the effort. The finest renderings are those by the late, great Davie Stewart, a recording of which can be heard over on the Lomax archive:

Davie Stewart : M'Gintie's Meal an' Ale
