My Boy Jack​/​Widowmaker (Kipling​/​Bellamy)

from Among Friends by Debra Cowan



These were two songs that were just begging to be placed together. The late Peter Bellamy took many of Kipling's poems and put them to tunes. His own version of “My Boy Jack” is stunning. I am sorry that I never got to met Peter who died in 1991. Bacca Pipes was his folk club and I think it's a fitting tribute to him that many of Peter's friends were present to hear my tribute. John Conolly's “Widowmaker” was suggested to me by the aforementioned Tom Lewis.
