Eliza Carthy and the Ratcatchers: Gallant Hussar

And here’s Eliza with her band The Ratcatchers (Jon Boden, John Spiers, and Ben Ivitsky). The quality of the video isn’t all that good, but if you want the original recording you can get it on Eliza’s album ‘Rough Music‘.


Here’s a piece about the song on Mainly Norfolk. It includes the full lyrics that Eliza and the boys are singing.
