Can you name 2 English ballads/folk-songs which are named after Fairs?
Scarborough for definite (or Scar-bore-row as Simon & Garfunkel will have it)
Scarborough Fair is definitely one.
ASAIK, Bellingham Fair in Northumberland is a Craft Fair, but does not lend its name to a piece of music.
Can you think of another?
Yes - "Scarborough Fair" and "Widdecombe Fair" are both correct.
There's also possibly "Brigg Fair" - a folk tune developed by Delius.

Who originally recorded the song 'The Tide Is High'?
Why did Don Whillans and Joe Brown name one of their classic 1950s rock climbs " Kipling Groove"?
Because they thought he made exceedingly fine cakes? (Sorry!)
So do I, but it's not correct.
The climb was/is far from a piece of cake, if that's a clue...
Does it involve negotiating a large rock overhang ?
Probably was ovehanging, but not the answer I was after. . A clue is that Don and Joe were from Manchester, and the climb was certainly not a piece of cake! In fact it was, in their description - ! (Think lake).
Yep! Your go...
I can't think of a decent question so, Open Floor.
