Goat On The Green (The)

“The Goat On The Green” is the first tune I ever learned on the concertina. It comes from Terry Bingham’s album, as part of a set called “Charlie Harris'”. It is not a very common session tune but you hear it every now and then. It also goes by the name “The Frog In The Well”.
