« Part 4: Nehemiah Wallington (1598-1658) Part 5 of Early Modern Woodworking series no next part

In this English folk-song (1681) coopers and joyners are compared and contrasted. Apparently, the cooper is ‘the man,’ as well as ‘the white boy’. Some of the lyrics could be oddly contemporary! But as the song progresses, the religious and political overtones of the time grow and become more humorous. I definitely need to check into the background. I wonder if this has anything to do with Stephen Colledge, alias: The Protestant Joyner…
