wes.w Origin: The Dark Island (41) RE: The Dark Island? 26 Feb 01

As a fairly 'aged' one, yes 'Dark Island', played on concertina, was used for a BBC series (forget which) in the late 50s/early 60s. It was also being played as a waltz in the North/Scotland in the late 60s - early 70s. I might have a recording somewhere, I'll hunt. ..wes
