Scarborough Fair

Art Garfunkel was at Memorial Hall in Plymouth, and I was , too. And about 1,500 others, including Jacob, Erin, Kristi, Jeanne, Chris and Heidi, to name a few.

Art sang (natch)

He shared the credit with his musicians  :

Tab Laven 

and

Dave Mackay

He told stories and dropped a few names (Paul Simon. and also Mike Nichols, Jack Nicholson, Paul Simon, Ann Margret, Paul Simon….)

He talked about his family – his kids, his wife, his parents.

He said the Enrico Caruso’s arias from The Pearl Fishers was a huge influence on him.

and he sang……

Are you going to Marlborough Fair?

Not to be confused with Scarborough Fair….or the song of that name.

Marlborough Pie is a rich, enriched sort of custard and apple concoction that is far too easy and good, good, good to have ever fallen out of favor.

And now seems to be having a teeny-tiny rebirth.

First – there are various historic sites that keep it alive, thank you Old Sturbridge Village

Here’s Ryan Beckman on  pie

and then a story on Eater : what-is-marlborough-pie

…which could be why I’ve been fielding Marlborugh Pie questions all week…

Here’s a recipe from OSV

Marlbor pud RX

There;’s a certain (tasty) place where pie and pudding intersect. Pudding Pie is a real (GOOD) thing.

Tastes like a million bucks! Don’t skimp on the sherry…
