Bread And Fshes

musician/member name: People & Blogs
Duration: 00:01:45
a short and simple arrangement of the beautiful melody from Alan Bell's popular song Bread And Fishes

the late Alan Bell was a folk singer, songwriter and festival organiser and Bread And fishes is his best-known song, written in 1968 - it was featured on British TV's Songs of Praise and reached the charts in Ireland and Japan - Bread And Fishes the song is a folk-style hymn is based on the strange legend that Jesus travelled in England as a child, accompanied by his parents

the melody only is played here fingerstyle on my Doug Berch mountain dulcimer in Ionian tuning EBB (DAA but in key of E)

Very nice Dan. I'm not familiar with the tune or legend but the melody is delightful. Thanks for sharing it.

I'm working on a new album of waltzes at the moment and might make this the opening track (US = cut) - I think it would set the scene nicely

a simple but pleasing piece - I met composer Alan Bell at a festival and after making this film, tried to contact him - he would doubtless have like to see it - sadly, he's passed a few months earlier
