about

Composed by Ewan MacColl in 1960 for the radio programme ‘Singing the Fishing’, the third instalment in his epic BBC Radio Ballads series. While the programme explored many different aspects of life in fishing communities, this particular song describes the hardship endured by the wives left alone on shore.
