The Wreckers Prayer

The Wreckers Prayer is one of the songs I wrote during a road trip around the north of Spain after my travelling companion let me down. It harks back to an inscription vaguely remembered from a church wall on St Agnes, Isles of Scilly and the notorious Cornish Wreckers of old, but then also gells with the news stories from Branscombe beach in Devon. Anyway, I explained some that in the introduction which is captured on this video from Walthamstow Folk Club last Sunday.

So that's the live version but there's also a recorded track of The Wreckers Prayer with two voices and two guitars.
