Lost In Fishponds

Tune taken from Blazin’ Fiddles Live released in 2007.
It is attributed to The Famous Five a Bristol based band now renamed as Spiro, not sure who actually wrote it. I would love to hear their version of the tune, but alas I don’t think a recording of it still exists. Not sure how the Blazers got hold of it, I think they actually were Lost in Fishponds and bumped into the band.
Being a Bristolian myself I have fond memories of Fishponds as my Gran was born there and lived there nearly all her life. Sleep well Mary Blackmore.
The tune can be heard on Spotify here:

I found out that Jon Hunt of Spiro wrote this tune!

Re: Lost In Fishponds

I found the Spiro version of this tune on YouTube. I had never heard it before either; the first time I heard this tune was on The Poozies’ album Infinite Blue. It’s interesting to contrast that arrangement with Spiro’s. https://youtu.be/Wpdhklu1ae4

And here is The Poozies’ version (third tune in the set).
