These songs of merriment and mayhem were of the kind, Lloyd said, that might be heard "around the barroom table of a little country alehouse on a Saturday night not drinking songs in the strict sense - not songs merely in praise of liquor" but songs that "tell a bit of a story songs as sly as a tinker's wink, as rough as a ploughman's hand." They are accompanied on banjo or concertina.
