“Who Killed Cock Robin?” combines old folksongs, early blues, an Irish track, and four original songs.

The stories of Cock Robin and the Cutty Wren are related in myth. Some say one bird represents half of the calendar year, and the other bird the other half, such that one must die for the other to live. There’s also an interpretation that the Cutty Wren is an allegory for the Peasants’ Revolt of 1381 in England, and that the intended victim of this “wren hunt” is the King himself.

“Richland Woman Blues” is my interpretation of a Mississippi John Hurt song. “Curly Headed Woman” is another name for a song often referred to as “Hesitation Blues.” “Whiskey in the Jar” is my performance of an Irish ballad, with strains of the fiddle tune “Whiskey Before Breakfast” sprinkled throughout.

Dean Rathje: vocals, guitar, banjo, mandolin, piano, dobro, bass.
