Fairport Convention – “Tam Lin”.

Hi. 🙂

Today I have another Fairport Convention’s song, and it is also a traditional ballad. I just love it in their version. It is a Scottish ballad and I’ve been familiar with it for quite a while. When I was younger and at home, Mum often used to read fairytales for me, which resulted in my love for them and for all kinds of myths, legends and folklore stuff. And she had one book with Scottish fairytales which I particularly enjoyed, and there was a fairytale about Tam Lin, one of my favourites i that volume. So I was very happy to see years later that one of my favourite female singers – Sandy Denny – made it with her band.
