“Olden Days”


Kate is married in "1602." There's a dance followed by drink, partying, and a friendly fight.


Peacock writes "Chris Cobb is, of course, kidding about the date '1602.' The wedding party actually took place in Barred Islands, and Cris composed this song to commemorate the event and to entertain the people who had been there." - BS
