Scarborough Fair Guitar trio
Traditional, BALLAD, TRADITIONAL
"Scarborough Fair" is a traditional English ballad that hangs in some versions at least upon a possible visit by an unidentified person (the "third party") to the Yorkshire town of Scarborough.
The song implies the tale of a man who instructs the third party to tell his former love, who lives in said fair town, to perform for him a series of impossible tasks, such as making for him a shirt without a seam and then washing it in a dry well, adding that if she were to complete these tasks he would take her back into his affections. Often the song is sung as a duet, with the woman then giving her sometime lover a series of equally impossible tasks, promising to give him his seamless shirt once he has finished.
