Subject: RE: Searching for a Ballad
Wish I knew whose book it was before Will Walker - how many were printed? (I used to love old textbooks at school, reading the names of former pupils who had them for the duration of their course!)
I used speak with Anne Neilson about what should happen to our personal collections of songbooks on our demise(s) - we wished there was a facility like The Wighton Centre in Dundee, perhaps - in an ideal world - TMSA could set up centres in various places that would have archives for our treasured books and recordings?!
Some of us have sets of Child, Greig Duncan, old books found in Oxfam,special.ones like my Herd......it would be good to know they were going to good homes or a resource centre ?
