about

This is Vinna Bee with her very modern arrangement and interpretation, using the Marie Lwyd chant as the essence of this updated and modern version of a very old ancient traditional Welsh song.

lyrics

Gray Mare (Mari Lwyd) Traditional
Here we come Dear friends Here we are dear friends,
to ask if we may, to ask if we may, to ask permission So that we may sing.

If we don't have right of way, if we don’t then you must say, let us know in song, let us know in song, let us know in song should we go away tonight.

We are bruised on our shins crossing o’er many miles to come here, to come right here, to come right here so should we go away tonight

If there are men who can write Poetry Let us hear them now and sing
The fat sweet dish all sorts of spices for the holidays.

Here we come Dear friends Here we are dear friends
to ask if we may, to ask if we may, to ask permission So that we may sing

about

Vinna Bee the Apiary UK

Seductively ice toned in noir demurred intimacy, purring electronics, ghostly folk and that whole overall sense of something delightfully out of focus.
