In our trial episode we spoke to Laura Smyth and Ted Kemp when they played at Mill Race Folk in Bromham Mill in November 2017. They performed their version of 'Murder in the Red Barn' for the podcast. This song features on their fantastic debut album, 'The Poacher’s Fate'. We had an extensive conversation about where they found the lyrics, where they found the tune for this folk song and their approach to arranging and performing. We chatted about the broadside printer, Catnach and other versions of this ballad. We talked about murder, executions and gruesome artifacts too.
