Here's another track from Woven. This is a very old Northumbrian song that I'd been aware of for many years but never tried singing until this project came along! An old man talks to an oak tree, lamenting his lost youth. As the tree ages, it gets bigger and stronger, where the man is becoming more feeble.
Thanks also to Roddy Hart for giving the song a spin on his BBC Radio Scotland show last night.
