I'm still re-recording the odd number from the 52 Folk Songs roster, and here's the latest. Have a listen to this; I think it's rather good.

Lord Allenwater

My original Lord Allenwater was unaccompanied; I always felt it didn't really do justice to the song, which is one I'm particularly fond of. Hopefully I've set things straight now. This version features concertina (chords and a heavily processed drone) as well as flute and recorder. The accompaniment is based on Shirley and Dolly Collins's arrangement or rather, on my memory of it; I've deliberately not listened to it while I was working on this. Folk process innit. Thanks also to Malcolm for persuading me not to change the tune, and to Sean for turning me on to drone.
