Hi all

This programme from yesterday on R3 is an excellent journey through music making on a journey from Lincoln - Birmingham via Castleton carols and many other traditions.

Enjoy!

Don't tell anybody, you'll ruin the myth that the sum total of national folk music broadcasting is one hour a week on radio 2.

I don't know how much R3 broadcasts there is plenty scattered through the week. What is more it is out of the ghetto and delivered as part of the general mix of broadcasting.

Thanks for the link - listening to it now - something I would otherwise have missed and they start their journey practically at my back door!

Pete.

No - Lincoln - but occasionally travel around that area and like the name.

Nice place innit?

Cheers,

Pete.

Just started listening to it now. I'd not heard of the Lincoln Effect before.

BTW: Season's greetings to Mr & Mrs Coggles!.

And it's getting better - Thoresby Colliery Band now. I put them on in a concert in October this year.

Great stuff.

Glad you are all enjoying it! I find myself listening to a lot more folk related stuff on R3 than R2 - though starting tomorrow on R2 for 4 nights at 10pm is a series about carol traditions - looking forward to those!

And thanks from me too. A fascinating selection of music, and it was nice to hear the folk carols presented as another valid form of community music-making, alongside opera and brass bands. I had to grin at the efforts of the classical-style singers attempting "Lincolnshire Poacher" in the pub, (and I winced at the comment about folk singers and sandals) but good luck to them all.
And yes, I agree it's good to hear folk and trad music presented as part of the musical spectrum, and not just as a specialised minority interest.
