Four comments


One from Mr Andy Cutting. I first heard it at a Sheffield CeilidhSoc session and just loved the B part (I’m a sucker for that sort of thing).

Recorded by Blowzabella on Vanilla (where they put it with The Hob)

The Raunchy Star Bird

I would love to know the reason it’s called this…

I’ve a feeling the “St” and “B” might be swapped around.

RSB amended abc

The tune is printed in the 2004 Blowzabella tune book, and the abc created from that is shown below.
