skw@worldmusic.de Dancers of Stanton Drew/Wedding at Stanton Mews (37) RE: Wedding at Stanton Mews 09 Feb 99


I have a song called 'The Dancers of Stanton Drew' on an old album (c. 1975). It is about a wedding party that hires another fiddler when the first one refuses to go on playing music on a Saturday. He turns out to be the devil, and turns them all to stone. Stanton Drew is in Dorset, I think, and the song refers to some standing stones in the area. But I'm not sure about that. If it's the one you mean I could bring it in next week. (I'll be away for a few days.) - Susanne
