Young Tambling


This version of the Tam Lin ballad was popularized by folk singers like AL Lloyd and Frankie Armstrong. Another beautiful melody full of the drama rescuing Tam Lin from the Fairy Queen.

Here is another ballad for those of us bitten by the Tam Lin bug. I've added an introduction and ending to this lovely melody.  The accompaniment features ballad patterns and parallel motion.

Intermediate level. In A minor (key of C). Two pages of music plus text.  No lever changes, fingerings or brackets.
