An Extra Helping of the Blue Plate Special – Four Leaf Peat

An old Celtic ballad about unfaithfulness, cross-dressing and murder? Four Leaf Peat treats the Blue Plate Special audience to a tale of a young girl who, when her true love (Willie Taylor) is taken away to go and fight in the navy, dresses up as a sailor and sets off to find him. As the story develops, she has an incident with her clothing which “exposes” the fact that she’s not a man. After that, the story gets interesting. Especially for young Willie Taylor!
