Navajos and Pirates

We wrote this song to commemorate those courageous young men and women who stood up to Nazism in late 1930s Germany and on into the war years. Known collectively as the Edelweiss Pirates because of the metal badges they wore emblazoned with the flower, their group name in Cologne was The Navajos.

Joint event with Cambridge Folk Club and Mill Road Historical Society, 18th June 2019, evening

After leaving the Cambridge105 radio station where we had earlier recorded a live set for broadcast on Les Ray’s Strummers & Dreamers radio show (see previous blogpost), we drove the very short distance back along Gwydir Street to St Barnabas’ Church on Mill Road, Cambridge and parked next to the St Barnabas Centre where we were performing that evening.
