One of the songs we sang at The Royal Albert Hall is a really old folk song that nobody knows who originally wrote. It is a very powerful song that has been recorded by lots of different artists. Have a listen to the these very different versions and leave me a comment to say which you prefer!
Choice 1 Jonny Cash
Choice 2 Ed Sheeran
Choice 3 Eva Cassidy
Choice 4 Al -Andalus
I want to say thank you to Pete for introducing this song to us. I want to know more about it! Who IS the poor wayfaring stranger? What stories could he tell about his life? Why is he far from home? He would be a fantastic subject for a story or a drama. And if anyone is interested, I like at the versions above but my absolute favourite is the last one. I love the combination of instruments and the sounds from different cultures
