 Traditional Folk Song and Music Appreciation Group

This relaxed and friendly group listens to authentic recordings of the Folk Song and Music of Britain sung by the old singers from whom they were collected. Songs of Love and Courtship, Soldiers, Sailors and Serving Maids, Child Ballads, etc, collected by Peter Kennedy, Alan Lomax, Seamus Ennis, Sean O’Boyle, Hamish Henderson, etc, (authoritative song collections made in 60s).

We also listen to more contemporary performers including Martin Carthy, The Watersons, Tony Rose, Rae Fisher and many more as well as folk music from many countries, Ireland, France, Bulgaria, America, Spain, Greece, Egypt etc.

We sit back and enjoy the songs and music but pursue more academic discussion if members wish.

We meet on the 4th Wednesday of each month, 2.00 until 4.00, and, if you are interested, please contact the group leaders,  Mags & Ken Whiting, on 01457 865805.
