Thread Name: New Cecil Sharp Book - 'Still Growing'
Subject: New Cecil Sharp Book
The long-awaited new Cecil Sharp Collection, "Still Growing", is now available. Compiled and edited by Steve Roud, Eddie Upton and Malcolm Taylor with an introduction by Vic Gammon, this 121 page softcover book presents a vivid picture of the early days of folksong collection. It also contains 50 songs (words, music and notes on the singers), and is profusely illustrated.
It's published by the English Folk Dance and Song Society, and EFDSS charges 12.99 (that's pounds, folks) or about $21. You can purchase it at CAMSCO for $17.50.
