Everything English, Scottish,Irish or Celtic

Having recently rediscovered my Englishness, I would like ask Arrsers to recommend a few folk songs for my listening pleasure. At the moment I am thoroughly taken by this charming tune called "scarborough fair"- a tune that I find to be totally engrossing.

I've also been listening to this one program called Thistle and Shamrock that has a Celtic leaning but most times I don't understand a single word of the goings on.


So dear Arrsers, can you recommend old songs from the old country?

If 31 years counts as ‘old’ for a song, then Roy Harper’s “When an Old Cricketer Leaves the Crease” paints a passable picture of Englishness (certainly if you’re from ‘oop north’).

Can't imagine you'd find the album anywhere down the Mekong though; BKK perhaps (or Amazon - though they'll have one less copy in stock by the end of today).
