about

A wonderful narrative folk ballad by Archie Fisher, released in 1976 on his album The Man With A Rhyme. Archie says: ‘The original myth about female centaurs in Windermere first came to my attention when I saw a painting by the Lake District artist Joni Crosby. Apparently deer used to swim across the shallow end of Lake Windermere and weeds got caught in their antlers and observers, probably wandering home from a local hostelry, took them to be these mythical creatures.’

Archie made a sequel called ‘The Return’ and is working on a prequel for a recording project that will become a trilogy on the Witch theme.

My thanks to Archie for giving me permission to record his song.
