Chapter 3: Whiskey In The Jar

British folk (and British folk-inspired)

The Anthology heads to the British Isles, where we’ll find the first English language songs being whipped up by clever bards. Some of these tunes originate as far back as the 16th century (here tackled by faithful interpreters like The Dubliners and Tia Blake). But you’ll also find original songs in high Renaissance style, and a true prog rock saga with Fairport Convention’s take on the 400 year old “Tam Lin.”
