Maid on the Shore

Anonymous
[prima metà dell'800, ma forse ben più antica]
Quello che riporto è il testo della versione della grandissima Frankie Armstrong, dal suo "Lovely on the Water" del 1972, di una delle canzoni tradizionali inglesi più femministe di sempre, al pari di The Crafty Maid's Policy, Lady Maisry, Wreccan wifes ged [The Wife's Lament; The Wife's Complaint] e altre già presenti sul sito.

"Maid on the Shore", o "The Mermaid", è stata incisa anche da A.L. Lloyd, Peggy Seeger, Martin Carthy, Stan Rogers, Cyril Tawney e molti altri artisti

The House Of Orange

"I don't care what your politics are, when
our children are dying in the streets, it's time to put away the guns." Stan Rogers

The House of Orange is a Stan Rogers song about The Troubles, in particular about fundraising for the combatants in Canada. The overall sentiment of the song is "a pox on both your houses". The 'House of Orange' mentioned in the song is the royal house of William III of England, who led the Protestant side of the Williamite war in Ireland. It is on his posthumous CD From Fresh Water. This is the last song written by Stan Rogers before his death, and arguably among his most lyrically evocative
