As part of the workshop day Tom and Barbara have invited people to learn a West Country song (specimens supplied on booking) or to bring a West Country song they already know. I think I might bring one I learned from Charlie Jose of Boscastle.

I'm delighted to see that one of the songs Tom and Barbara have just emailed me to be used in the workshop tomorrow is The Exmoor Ram, which my husband Meic recorded from Nobby Clarke in a pub in Swimbridge, Devon, about forty years ago.
