Oops- I meant Mike Waterson's Tam Lin, on his solo album. Bad pronoun
reference! No biscuit!
[<<Tim Hart doesn't choose to sing like that, he just does!>>
You should hear his Tam Lin. Really, you should, especially since you
mentioned the narrative elements of the ballad. His ornamentation is
superb and very, very natural.]
I probably have. Years ago when I saw Steeleye Span (at the Cambridge Corn
Exchange-- gotta love those town market holdovers!), Tim Hart "opened" for
them, a shameless case of double-dipping, but he wanted to do some of his
favorite trad TRAD, not as SS does it.
