Reinhard Origins: What Will We Do? (Silly Sisters) (36) RE: Origins: What Will We Do? (Silly Sisters) 11 May 17


Michael, Mary Delaney's song was first released in 1986 on the VWML cassette "Early in the Month of Spring", well before the Silly Sister's album "No More to the Dance".   And both June Tabor and Peta Webb credit Mary Delaney as their source for this song - June wrote:

"This little piece that Maddy and I sang, collected by [Jim Carroll and Pat Mackenzie] from the singing of Mary Delaney, is quite light, quite insubstantial in a way, but it's very real. It's talking about begging, keeping on the road, keeping going no matter what happens. It's a lovely piece of Silly Sisterness."
