Music From The Glen
Sunday October 9th, 2005 with Colin Henein

On this thanksgiving Sunday: start off with a harvest theme. Some harvest and fall songs, but - hey - let's be frank here - harvest, at least in england is all about the corn… and that's corn in the generic sense of 'grain'. Wheat and, most important from the folk song point of view BARLEY. Because we all know that english folk is about may mornings, fair maids, and good brown ale. So the first 45 min will be my tribute to the harvest, with a focus on that all-important aspect of it: Beer. "
