Fair Maid On The Shore

Helen Allingham - At the Seashore.jpg

There’s a long tradition in English folk song of women coming off best against the odds. Some employ charms, some herbs, drink or cunning, but all are better thinkers. In this song a ship full of pirates are no match for her voice and an appropriate song.

The first painting is At The Seashore by Helen Allingham
