about

"I'm calling this song 'The Ballad of Hugh Stenson'.  It's from a book called The Ballads and Songs of Derbyshire, edited in 1867 by Llewellyn Jewitt. It's a traditional ballad, traditional words that I've reformed a little.  In the book it's called Hugh Stenson and Molly Green, and Molly Green is the name of the girl he falls in love with. I decided she really didn't feature enough to be warranting a title name. I wanted to do you a song from Derbyshire, a song from the Peak District, which is where we are. I've recorded all the ones I usually sing, so I found this one. The only version I found of it recorded was by the brilliant John Tams.  His is set to the hymn tune 'It Is The Truth Sent From Above', which is in quite a minor-y key.  I wanted to do something a bit more jolly, so I've written a new tune for the song."
