Robbing The Elf Hills

Posted by shanoah on September 22, 2009

Well, after that depressing post, back to folk music, I suppose. In this case, thought I’d revisit Steeleye Span.

Check this song. It is called Robbery With Violins, and is one of these fabulous juxtapositions of a traditional tune with modern instruments I occasionally find.

Since that was less then 2 minutes, lets throw in an utterly traditional tune, Si Bheag Si Mohr. You’ve heard it before. Everyone has. It’s played at every remotely Irish festival that ever exists. It’s a good tune, though.
