Friday Folk Flashback

“Cam Ye O’er Frae France” – Steeleye Span

I’ve been listening a lot to Bellowhead’s new album Revival and noticed that their instrumental “Jack Lintel’s Jig” (which is actually a hornpipe) is basically the same tune as “Cam Ye O’er Frae France”, which in turn sent me down a Youtube rabbit hole listening to different versions of the Jacobite song. This was probably my favourite, and there’s not much that beats Steeleye Span live (and Maddy Prior dancing!)
