The Weaver and the Factory Maid

This is an old Steeleye Span song, a favourite of mine, cleverly combining two 19th century weavers songs. The You Tube presentation is noteworthy for two rareities, a video that adds something to the song, and a collection of mostly intelligent comments.  Open in You Tube and have a read while you listen.

    Thank you so much for that. I spent a day last week with Steeleye Span playing on we7 but this particular song doesn’t seem to be in the playlists – and, of course, the pictures on YouTube are stunning.
