World Of Music Choir: Tuesday 31st March – ‘The Wind & The Rain’ led by Bella Hardy

Band on the Wall’s doors may be shut for a little while but you can still take part in our fun music learning programmes from the comfort of your own home.

Tune in every Tuesday at 6pm (UK time) to join Bella Hardy for the World Of Music Choir online! Sing traditional and modern songs, harmonies and rounds. We learn by ear so you don’t have to read music, but words and scores can be downloaded here. This week’s lyrics are also below.

This live event is interactive; you can comment and ask questions, and the video will be available after the workshop to recap and sing along to.

To view and add live comments, open this video in YouTube.

This Week’s Song: The Wind & The Rain

Traditional (a version of ‘Two Sisters’ learnt from the singing of Hen Party) arr. Bella Hardy

Two young sisters a’walking side by side
Oh the wind and rain
Two young sisters a’walking side by side
Crying oh the dreadful wind and rain

One pushed the other in the water so wide

And she’s floated on down to the miller’s mill dam

And the miller’s fished her out with his wooden hooking pole

And he’s made fiddle strings from her long and curly hair

And he’s made fiddle pegs from her little finger bones

(But) The only tune that the fiddle would play was

Two young sisters a’walking side by side
Oh the wind and rain
One pushed the other in the water so wide
Crying oh the dreadful wind and rain
