Dark Ships of the Forest

by John Roberts
Tony Barrand

As children, we are as familiar with the story-world of elves, giants, witches and ghosts as we are with the world of reality around us. On Darks Ships of the Forest, John Roberts and Tony Barrand serve up a delightful mix of English songs full of bizarre encounters between young men and water nymphs, knights and dragons, fairy queens and magicians, unnatural happenings, pagan ritual and the fantastical events of the balladry of yesteryear. In the primal forest of folk songs, these are our dark ships. 1997
