Adam was a Poacher . Traditional with extra lyrics by Jo Freya. Arranged by Blowzabella. Dave came across this in the William Andrews Tunebook, a book of Dartmoor tunes collected by the Rev. Sabine Baring-Gould from William Andrews of Sheepstor in 1893, published by The Wren Trust. Paul found a brief version of the words in the Kennedy Grant Library at Halsway Manor (national centre for folk arts), scribbled them on a piece of paper and gave them to Jo who added to the poacher’s story. Jo – vocals. Barn – bass guitar, Andy – diatonic button accordion, triangle, Greg – hurdy-gurdy, Dave – violin, Paul James – alto and baritone saxophones, Jon Swayne – alto saxophone.
