“Old Gold” is my performance of a set of primarily Celtic ballads. “Lucy Wan” is a tale of murder from the Child Ballads. “The Merry Bachelor” is a tale of disaffection with married life. “The Friar in the Well” is a seduction tale, with the maid gaining her revenge.

“Bright Morning Stars” is a solemn Shaker hymn. “The Bachelor’s Lay” is a tale of woe from a man whom no woman will accept as husband. “Little Ball of Yarn” is a humorous seduction tale. “Reckless Rambling Boys” prefers the rambling life to domestic discontentment.

Dean Rathje: voices, guitars, banjo, mandolin, piano, bass.
