The Robin’s Petition arranged by Jackie Oates & David Le Page is the second single from our latest album Earthcycle. A traditional song collected by folk song collector Cecil Sharp, from Romany singer Emma Glover who lived in Huish Episcopi in Somerset in 1909.
Cecil Sharp was the figurehead of the folk movement running the English Folk Dance Society from 1911 and well-known for collecting at least 5,000 folk songs between 1899 and 1924 when he died.
The Robin’s Petition is part of the Earthcycle’s ‘Winter segment’ and features the vocals of English folk Musician, Singer, Performer and Educator Jackie Oates.
