I’m uploading these songs on 9th of September; what would have been Peter Bellamy’s 67th birthday. I’m marking the day by publishing three songs today, all with a Bellamy connection.
FS02 is The death of Bill Brown, a topical eighteenth-century song about the shootings of a poacher and of the gamekeeper who shot him. Also: Us poor fellows and My boy Jack, respectively a Bellamy original (from the Transports) and one of his settings of Kipling.
Happy birthday, Peter.
