A tune worth messing around with. It's my favorite of yours yet and I have messed around with it as The False Hearted Knight or Pretty Pauline (scandalous as well) collected by ethnomusicologist types in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and West Virginia.... youtu.be/0uwrkYDgX3M
Peggy, you're new recording life seems to be getting off to a good start. And maybe encouraged a "Willie Moore" TOTW. Jenny Cleland used to sing this song, and we played it many times. Here we are in Germany, Spring 1978.
That lake (forgot the name of it now) was in a Nature Center up in Milford Ohio...it might be called the Cincinnati Nature Center or something like that. You have to pay a membership to take their hikes there, and one year we joined up for a year...it was sort of a homeschool project for my grandson and we were all there quite a bit. Very nice place, but too much of a drive for us to keep going. I got free milkweed seeds from the place and to this day we have swamp milkweed galore coming up and my grandson still brings in monarch caterpillars, tags them as they emerge as butterflies, and follows their progress as they migrate to mexico. Anyway, that lake was a beautiful and favorite stopping spot on one of those trails.
Wow wow wow. Great as usual. As I was listening to your fine playing and singing , GHP, I was researching the actual song. Seems it is a traditional which has had different verses added here and there?
Just keep playing this stuff, for it sounds so very fine to me.
Hmmm...never thought of that. You might be on to something, there, Rich. I had to think about that for a few minutes and I guess you mean the general melodic contour and rhythms of the phrases...the way the phrases fall? Yeah, I think I can see a similarity. Never realized it before.

Hopefully, I'm not posting in bad taste here to also comment on Mr. Craver's rendering which I like quite a lot as well. I discovered his YT channel a couple years ago and have followed him there. Beautiful playing and super cool videos.
