Greetings,

I'm looking for a song that sounds similar to the piano section in the following song by the band Folque and was released around the same time ( 60s /70s ) but in that song the sequence was the central motive of the song and not just one section:

Can someone help me out? Thank you!

There is definitely something familiar about that. I have three candidates for bands, if that's any help - Steeleye Span, Fairport Convention and Pentangle, and I'm leaning towards it being Pentangle. If I have any more inspiration, I'll let you know ...

Do you mean Steeleye Span's version of Alison Gross, or perhaps their version of Thomas the Rhymer, similar melody? The youtube clip you refer to is just the Danish band Folque's version of Alison Gross.

Ok, I shall reveal to you what I actually want:

I'm a video game music hunter. I take famous video game soundtracks, then try to find the musical genres that inspired them. Sometimes it happens that I find a tune that sounds as if it had been inspired by a very concrete piece of music that was released earlier. I document my findings in this blog:

Now when I heard that particular section at that particular timestamp of Alison Gross I was strongly reminded of a particular tune from a famous videogame, this one:

Now I'm trying to find out whether there is a full song somewhere that sounds like this tune.

Thanks for your help.

So, does the Steeley Span version fit the bill?

Hmm, I think the Folque version is slightly better.

I heard several dozen english/scottish/irish folk tunes in the meantime. Don't hear a lot like Alison Gross.
