I've seen the latter 2 - absolutely essential viewing/listening.

Everybody should get to see these while they've got the chance - a fascinating part of our folk history.

Could I just mention that Shirley Collins is doing a couple of all-day masterclasses on English traditional song for the Lewes Saturday Folk Club on Satuday 17th. and Sunday 18th. April next year? There is a maximum of eight places per day.

In the evenings, Shirley will present her illustrated talks on 'Im a Romany Rai'(Saturday) and 'Peter Kennedy's Collections in Southern England'(Sunday). The rest of the evenings will be given over to floor singers; if past experience is anything to go by, some distinguished specimens will be there.

It's far too early to take firm bookings, but if you'd like to go on the Interested list PM me your email address.

Tootle pip,

I had the joy of introducing Shirley Collin's 2 shows, a couple of years ago at Fylde. Now I must admit I am biased, I fell in love with her 30+ years ago, and remain so, but having said that, Sunshiney Day & America, are the most wonderful shows. NOT TO BE MISSED! Ron
