Scarborough Fair

Something for the weekend.  A favorite from my mispent youth, Scarborough Fair by Simon and Garfunkel.  One of my early experiences of enjoying the art someone produces while viewing their politics as puerile.

Celtic Woman has a nice rendition below sans the Canticle counterpoint of the Simon and Garfunkel version:

    Ah yes Don, another great piece of music that demonstrates your ability to recognise a great era in music…the umm….70’s wasn’t it?? 😉

    And you also show immense taste in selecting our own kiwi lass, Hayley Westernra from Christchurch NZ to give the encore. I have been following her progress since early this decade when she emerged as a thirteen year old (I think) demonstrating huge talent even then.
    I think she is now 20 or 21, and has sung with such impressarios as Andrea Bocheli et al. She is a wonderful singer and a fine young woman. Her mother is her manager, and she is very family oriented.

    Kudos to you. 🙂

    Actually Don the Simon and Garfunkel version came out in 68, the ballad Scarborough Fair of course being around since the 18th century.

    I didn’t realize she is a kiwi Don! What a small world it truly is. I think she has a huge career ahead of her.
