5-7-09 Andy Irvine – Reynardine

Posted by Sean on May 7, 2009

Funny you should mention foxes, Shanoah. They’re right up there with bats in my list of favorite animals – flying foxes, anyone?

Anyway, I had the good fortune to know a folk musician named Stefan Dollak in college. As I remember, every day was Ren Faire for him – I can’t remember him out of garb – and he’d sing you a traditional song at the drop of a hat. This is one that made the biggest impression on me, Reynardine. It’s all about the immortal trickster doing what he does best: getting in the ladies’ pants and generally causing trouble.
