Tim learned Return to Camden Town from Josephine Marsh’s recording, and then found it on several other CD’s he’d been listening to for years. Tom Billy’s comes from Ed McGowan; it’s a quirky version of a session tune usually called “Speed the Plow”. The Caribou Reel is attributed to Métis fiddler Andy de Jarlis; this version of it is very much like “Pigeon on the Gate”.
