GUEST,keberoxu Lyr Req: Downfall of Paris? (34) RE: Lyr Req: Downfall of Paris? 08 May 21

Martin Carthy, performing "Downfall of Paris,"
has been recorded on more than one occasion live
(an assortment of YouTube videos, one of them clearly smuggled)
and when he is so inclined,
he will give a spoken introduction, while tuning his guitar,
conveying much of the historical information
given in a series of posts in this thread,
right down to "Croppies Lie Down."
I just witnessed a livestreamed performance
with Carthy including this instrumental in his second set,
and after seeing the performance online,
I much enjoyed looking up and reading this thread.
