Subject: Folklore: Sir Terry Pratchett and Dr J Simpson

I just came across this podcast, in four parts, of a conversation on Folklore, between Sir Terry Pratchett and Dr Jacqueline Simpson.
I hope some find it interesting. Sorry the links to the additional articles seem to have demised on Dec 31st 2010.
Tons of interesting bits, including Sir Terry singing part of "The Larks they sang Melodious" mentions of John Tams and some Discworld references.

I haven't listened yet, but I've heard of him saying that he looks on folklore the way a carpenter looks at trees.
True enough, there's a whole bundle of brilliantly warped folklore in his books.
Oh, but surely, it was "The larks they played melodians "?

Oh, no, please ~~ don't let's drift into silly versions of that lovely song AGAIN. Or drift in fashion so discourteous to the OP who has drawn our attention to an interesting folk ref by a distinguished non-folkie. Just grow up, why don't you? Surprised at you, Pete & LF.

OH here we go again. I'll continue to sing the Harry Cox version,staight, and just for spite, at Woody's session at West Deeping to night. Terry Pratchett is a folkie, with a lot of knowledge but that does mean that we all have to withstand his wicked sense of humour. At least he did not take the p*** out of Charming and Delightful, Gan Canny
