        The ancient ballads of Britain include many of the most powerful story-songs in the folk repertoire, exploring themes of heroism, savagery, magic & the supernatural. In this forum Brian Peters, leading researcher & performer of some of the greatest of the Child Ballads, will lead the group in discussing where to find the ballads, how to collate & arrange them, & how to set about singing them to best effect. Brian's expertise is well displayed on his recent CD dedicated to ballads, 'Songs of Trial & Triumph'.

Dirty Linen magazine (USA) says: 'He sings & plays with consummate skill, breathing life into unusual ballads which shimmer with magic & murder ... Peters's Child ballads embody trial & triumph, but also tragedy, action, excitement & humor, to say nothing of sex, drugs & even rock 'n' roll.You couldn't ask for more.'        
        
You are invited to bring at least one traditional ballad of your choice to sing & talk about.*

ON SATURDAY 28th. FEBRUARY
BRIAN PETERS PERFORMS AT THE ELEPHANT & CASTLE

I should of course add that Brian performs at the Lewes Saturday Folk Club
in the evening of Saturday 28th. February.

Tickets are £6 and are available in advance. The new room is much more spacious than our old one at the Lewes Arms, with beautiful acoustics and Harveys beer.

Valmai ... oops! Just realised that I haven't done anything about this, and that there's less time to go than I was thinking!!Hopefully I should get an application in the post to you this week - just need to check the diary to make sure that I haven't shot myself in the foot by booking myself into the wrong place at the wrong time.

Lucky for me, I'll see and play with Brian when he arrives in the States in few weeks. I'd love to be in Lewes for the all-day session, though. Don't miss Brian's ballad work, Mighty fine, mighty fine.

Lamkin has also been claimed (variant of Long Langkin).

This brings the probable death toll to about thirty-two, depending on how many babies are included in The Well Below The Valley and whether you count the previous victims of The Outlandish Knight. George Collins must account for six or seven.

Surreysinger has just raised the toll by one, having chosed The Unquiet Grave.

I suppose deaths should strictly happen during the course of the song to count.

Brian gave us a couple of terrific days: a melodeon workshop on Saturday, splendid folk club performance on Saturday night, and a superb ballad forum on the Sunday during which fourteen people relieved themselves of about eighteen full ballads and edited highlights of several more.

Because people had nominated their ballads in advance, Brian had been able to do a good deal of research on them and came up with a fascinating collection of rare recordings ranging from Irish travellers to Appalachian mountain singers; the participants themselves also produced a lot of historical detail, insights and background.

If you get the chance to take part in one of Brian's workshops, don't miss it.
