Subject: RE: FSGW getaway workshop: song collectors
Hi Nancy Jean, great idea for a workshop, love it. If you'd like I have some tape cassettes. One set from George Herbert ('THE' Master Rigger from Geelong), who sailed the Baltic & Cape Horn to Australia trade (don't knw what industry) pre & post WW1. I also have field recordings from Roger Abrahams (thanks to Abby Sale) that he used for his collection in "Deep the Water Shallow The Shore". Maybe you can enlist Liam's Brother in this. This shoul be a great one. Hope there's plenty of time or it all.
