That was a new tune to me Gordon, and beautifully played and sung on that new very rich sounding dulcimer. I think the 5 strings is a bit better for your big voice. Thank you for your posting. All's well enough in Vermont and I hope you all are well too.
Gordon,really enjoyed hearing that song again,so realistic.There's a Newfoundland version that has the same melodic contours but in 3/4 time.I guess this song was a 'hit' around the English speaking world before records,etc.
@strumelia, @robin-thompson Thank you for your kind comments.
Nice, Gordon. I'm currently reading The Unquiet Grave by Sharyn McCrumb. But in her book it's the mother who is grieving for her murdered daughter. Thanks for giving the history of the song. Dulcinina
Nicely played & sung, my friend!
The oldest songs move me in such profound ways. Thank you Gordon, your playing and singing is beautiful and soulful, as always. 🌱
