Tony Rees Meaning: Farewell Farewell (Fairport Convention) (44) RE: Meaning: Farewell Farewell (Fairport Convention) 28 Oct 18


The tune is indeed a fine one, but has only a recent/accidental association with Willie o Winsbury, which had its own tune (Andy Irvine got the wrong one when he recorded WoW with Sweeney's Men, so the story goes...) - more info at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willie_o_Winsbury#Recordings
