It would definately be very folky and pagan music in the village.....but up at the hall, well they have tv and internet, so I would imagine whatever's the popular music at the time,

I agree, definitely folky for the villagers and for the hallfolk - anything goes, they get out into the outside world. It raises another question of course, though they are mostly segregated, there is bound to be some crossover, some influencing of each other - how far would that go??

amagine if the villagers still sang the songs of the past ,ones weve long forgotten ,like rymes we are gradually forgetting now 'londons burning' 'here we go round the mulbury bush'for instance how often do kids today sing them today! :wink:

Ooh, nikki/tony! I was just thinking the same thing yesterday.... I always sang nursery rhymes to my daughter and my sister does to her children but I know many mums who get taught the songs at nursery or thier children teach them when they get home. Sad, but true...

I would love to learn some of the old folk songs - Ebany and MG and Carp, can you teach us at the Gathering?

I could imagine the younger villagers having their own 'nursery' rhymes, with a distinct pagan theme :D

I can imagine the sort of songs they have in"The Wicker Man" (oops - am I allowed to mention that? - too late :P ) being sung in the village - "Corn Rigs", "Summer Is A Comin' In" and the wee song they sing at the Maypole :wink:

I think I'd be the kind of villager who would do raids on the Hall to "liberate" Ipods and CDs so we could have the music we want 8) - punk rock in the Jack!

Ok, which one of you fair maidens is going to be brave enough to sing Willows song :lol:

here you are so you can practice:-
Heigh ho! Who is there?
No one but me, my dear.
Please come say, How do?
The things I'll give to you.
By stroke as gentle as a feather
I'll catch a rainbow from the sky
And tie the ends together.
Heigh ho! I am here
Am I not young and fair?
Please come say, How do?
The things I'll show to you.
Would you have a wond'rous sight
The midday sun at midnight?
Fair maid, white and red,
Comb you smooth and stroke your head
How a maid can milk a bull!
And every stroke a bucketful.

Ebany, that should keep them busy :wink:

I think Dahm the Bard and The Dolmen would be great.

They are pagan and folk!

I can picture us all in the barn drinking mead and jigging.
