Alan sings a stunning version of this 200+ year old broadside ballad, that links Cheshire and Belfast’s Black Mountain, and includes a new verse especially for Irish Sea Sessions 2011. Followed by a set of tunes: The Mist Covered Mountain, Dara Murphy’s, and Munster Buttermilk.

Dedicated to Cherith Watson, this version of Pete Wylie’s classic is best viewed at 720 dpi HD, with the volume turned UP!
