ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Wren Song is a Celtic family band focused on the renowned Gaelic world of traditional Scottish & Irish music.
We hope you find the roots of the past as interesting as we do. If so, we're sure you will enjoy our unique selection of songs, some of which are based on the almost unknown Celtic tradition of Robin Hood—the following possibly played & sung for the first time in hundreds of years:

• King Robin (Robin Y Righ)
• We'll Go to the Wood (Imigh Gys Y Coille)
• I Hunt the Wren (Shelg Mi An Dreathan), and
• Shaunnie o' Braidalaw have all been resurrected from dormant Robin Hood folklore.

Adele's belief is that the wren-hunting rituals of Celtic Britain stem from feats of rescue by Robin Hood in the forests of a misty time not yet past recall. The Shaunnie o' Braidalaw ballad, reconstructed by Adele, is actually a part of this story because the person rescued in it was Little John. Perhaps through our music you too, like Robin Hood and Little John, may be “to the greenwood gone.”

A special thanks to Tony Wait “Clement of the Glen” for the use of his spectacular photo of the greenwood at Burnham Beeches, England.
