LADY MARGARET, or "Fair Margaret and Sweet William," is Child 74. All three versions are late 17th century broadsides. The song is at least as old as Beaumont and Fletcher's "Knight of the Burning Pestle," 1611. The banjo part is mine, using Tom "Clarence" Ashley as a model.

I first heard LOCKS AND BOLTS more than 30 years ago on a recording by Hally Wood who sang it unaccompanied. I was just learning to play banjo, and experimenting with strange tunings.

I first heard THE PRODIGAL SON on Mike Seeger's Folkways recording of "Dock" Boggs in 1963. All of us who love oldtime country music owe a great deal to Mike.
