The First House in Connaught / Sailor’s Bonnet
[trad. arr. Steeleye Span]
Steeleye Span played the reels The First House in Connaught and Sailor’s Bonnet in 1989 on their album Tempted and Tried. They were also on the B-side of the single Padstow. A live recording of these reels at the Beck Theatre on 16 September 1989 was released on the video A 20th Anniversary Celebration. Another live version from 1994 was released on the album Steeleye Span in Concert. A further live recording of Sailor’s Bonnet from Perth Concert Hall in 1985 can be found on the CD Gone to Australia.
In 2006, Steeleye Span recorded The First House in Connaught again, this time together with the tune The Lady of the House, for their CD Bloody Men.
