Burton Bradstock promo

Burton Bradstock is the alter ego of multi-instrumentalist composers Jimmy Cannon and Dorian Ford. Burton Bradstock reimagines the traditional English folk song. Drawing on their extensive experience performing jazz, classical, pop and world music as well as folk, Burton Bradstock perform entirely new settings of traditional English songs with trademark subtlety. “A Jazz cousin of Fairport Convention’s folk-rock classic ‘Liege and lief’” - Jazzwise

I'm taking, of course, about the great mime artist Charlie Chaplin who composed the melody in 1936, with lyrics added in 1954 by John Turner & Geoffrey Parsons.
