The Little Cock Sparrow
« on: October 14, 2018, 09:06:27 PM »

Using my de-clubbed Hohner Bb/Eb Modell 1 https://youtu.be/zChDxoJKmTs

Recorded using a single Rode M2 pointed into a room corner treated using a duvet. I hope you like it.

In the days of my childhood, and that wasn't yesterday, or the day before an old Music Hall performer called Duncan MacRae did this every year, as his Hogmanay party piece. So the song really took me back.

That's quite something, though I rather wish the bully with the barra had experienced some kind of retribution, as often happens in folk songs.
