These are some of my favorite traditional ballads, from both sides of the ocean. Two of the songs are American prospecting songs. “Maid on the Shore” is a seafaring ballad. “Bonnie Susie Cleland” is about the burning of a woman who chooses the wrong marriage partner.

“Old & Broken” is an original song about things falling apart. “Down in the Willow Garden” is a folk song about a young man murdering his betrothed. “Two Magicians” tells of a merry chase, through forms and space, of a lusty blacksmith and his virgin intended. “The Mackerel of the Sea” is a ballad that tells of two children whose widowed father marries “the worst woman the world has ever seen.”

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