Widecombe Fair – Little Johnny England with Steve Knightley

Mention Widecombe Fair in a musical context and the traditional tale of Uncle Tom Cobley and his friends borrowing a grey mare to travel to Widecombe-in-the-Moor springs to mind.

It was not until recently I found out there was another, more modern, song titled ‘Widecombe Fair‘.

The video below is band Little Johnny England with Steve Knightley of Show of Hands on vocals playing the other ‘Widecombe Fair’ written by Knightley at the Village Pump Festival, Trowbridge, Wiltshire in 2010.
