I´ve also enjoyed each contribution. Everyone really showed a different side of the song. Starting with Bobs relaxed version where I think I can hear that he knows the song for a long time, also the instrumental is very nice. Then Jim Bessers dancing Morris interpretation which has quite a „soul“ feeling to me. To hear songs from people that play concertina for a long time is always like a good wine or aged whiskey for the ears. Jim Lucas, very enjoyable with a light touch. Darias version really cheers me up. Tona, to me, always sets a new standard by himself, the quality and sound of his playing are outstanding. And then there is Jody of course, a class of his own (my girlfriend just said „Johnny Cash on the concertina“ as she heard the recording). This version could easily be on a CD, it´s flawless.
Steve, I would be really curious to hear your version. Maybe you can do one after your folk festival?. The song is really fun to play.
