The Green Fields of France

One of the few totally serious spots in a Creeping Bentgrass gig will be when we play The Green Fields of France, a beautiful and very moving song about a visitor to a World War One cemetary talking to a young long-dead soldier.

We have included this track on the forthcoming album and I spent some time on it today putting my vocal parts on it. I only sing harmonies on the final chorus but we put a speaking part over the chorus which adds to the solemnity and raises the audience emotions a little bit.

We always have to sing something cheerful afterwards but I'm sure it will be one you remember when the album is released!
