Chris Mills of Shire Folk

reviews Dead Maid's Land by Paul Wilson & Marilyn Tucker


These songs are all from those collected in Devon and Cornwall at the end of the last century by the Reverend Sabine Baring?Gould. There is a version of The Drunken Maidens which obviously travelled readily across from the Isle of Wight. There is some well arranged fiddle accompaniment to the songs from Chris Bartram, and some equally welcome contributions from Tim Laycock (concertina), and Marilyn Tucker (vocals), among many others. This CD will be of particular interest to singers and players in search of new material, and It enriches the archive for the tradition as a whole.
