I'll Twine 'Mid the Ringlets

Posted 02-14-2015 at 04:58 PM by Bishop

composed by Joseph Philbrick Webster
lyrics by Maud Irving
recorded by Robin & Linda Williams

Many of you will know this tune as 'The WildWood Flower' but it actually started off life in 1860 with the title 'I'll Twine 'Mid the Ringlets'. Composed by Joseph Philbrick Webster and with lyrics by Maud Irving, this beautiful piece survives up to now suffering very few changes. The lyrics are as suitable for to day as they were then and the music is practically a must know for any Country Music guitarist.

This song was, of course, made famous by the Carter family and most of all by mother Maybelle Carter as it was her signature song. This cover is, however, based on the original lyrics and not the Carter version which was slightly different.

I chose to record this song as a result of stumbling onto a recording done by Robin & Linda Williams. I was struck at how the lyrics and even the style of the piece was so different from the previous recordings I had heard. Upon rechecking YouTube I could not find any other recordings that were done any different then the Carter Family style. There were recordings with fancier picking, maybe, but basically they were all sang just like Maybelle would have sung this song. This is my cover of the original 'I'll Twine 'Mid the Ringlets' in a style more akin to the Williams version. I Hope that you will enjoy it.
