General Wolfe

It’s just a fragment, but this short video by Chris Sarjeant has impressed me more than almost any new recording of traditional music I’ve heard in a long time. I’m going to order his new album right away!

Find out more about Chris at his website here. And there’s a good discussion of the history of this song here – it has been recorded by many other traditional musicians, including Martin Simpson, Maddy Prior, and the Watersons.
