English Folk Music: 'Soul Music', BBC Radio 4, In Search of "Scarborough Fair"

Caught part of this on the car radio. A proper listen!

"Tomorrow we're going in search of a song and in search of a dream of England which has travelled right around the world" - Will Parsons

"No one can be sure of the true origins of the song Scarborough Fair. It's a melody of mystery, of voices of old, of ancient days. It's travelled through land and time, drawing singers and listeners in where ever they maybe".

Martin Carthy with Dave Swarbrick
