'Green Gravel' is a tune that was popular in Shropshire in the 1800s. It features in the works of Mary Webb and Charlotte Burne and is our second contribution to the Folk project - sharing the folklore and customs of Shropshire.
Our video features a Whalebone first - singing lyrics!
Have you heard of this tune? Did you used to sing it as a child? Please leave a comment below!
The music for this tune can be downloaded from the FOLK website here: https://www.folkcc.co.uk/whats-on. Why not film yourself playing your version and share the footage in the comments?
This is part of a project running through to the summer that is showcasing Shropshire Folklore. A group of artists have come together to share the music, stories, crafts and customs of Shropshire through a series of videos released weekly.
You can follow all the artists and engage with the activities over at the Folk Facebook Group here: www.facebook.com/groups/510537079412355/
We would like to thank National Lottery Players for making this project possible. #NationalLottery
