We sailed off from a distant shore
To find the girl we all adore
The captain wanted it to be
So drunken sailors went to sea
A light will guide us from above
And help us find the one we love
If we can listen to the wind
The carnival can then begin

Don't run away now
Just wait until the morning
On hard times we are now falling
Back to the garden now we go

We are now ready to be told
The shrouded secrets that you hold
The clouded night has given way
For us to live inside the day
So come and stand beneath the sun
The ancient dance has just begun
There will be things to leave behind
To make the room for what we find

The Balladeers Glasgow

The Balladeers are a psychedelic 3-piece from Glasgow with an ear for timeless melody and a melting pot of sound and styles.

Medieval riffs, 60's influences, romantic poetry, nursery rhymes and carnival fairground sounds. Blues and classical arrangements intertwine with gypsy stylings, and jazz and afro-based rhythms are all thrown into this insane mix, bound together with a distinctly minor key.
