About Alan-a-Dale[edit | edit source]

He is a rooster and wandering minstrel who plays the lute and sings about Robin Hood.

At the archery tournament, he and Friar Tuck use his mandolin as a bow to shoot down Sir Hiss, then trap him in a barrel of ale.

He later plays his mandolin to "The Phony King of England". Then he is imprisoned along with many other townsfolk and sings "Not in Nottingham", which tells of the people's despair.

Finally, he tells of the return of King Richard before hurrying to Robin and Marian's wedding.
