The British Library's new sounds archive is a huge resource of original recordings and has a whole section on traditional music in England - see

http://sounds.bl.uk/World-and-traditional-music/Traditional-music-in-England

Some of the songs are only available to educational organisations but there many are public.

It would take ages to go through them all but you can search by county, song title etc.

Just one example, a recording of Scan Tester and others playing Bluebell Polka at Walter and Daisy Bulwer's home, Shipdham, Norfolk -

hundreds, perhaps thousands of others

I managed to miss this thread until it had nearly dropped off the bottom of the pile. Thanks so much for this, Southcoaster. I have always loved sound-only items: goes back to my childhood days, listening to the radio late at night (when I was supposed to be asleep), I suppose. The songs and chat and stories I heard were like secret friends and I took great comfort in them, and this feeling has never really gone away. Hence I love anything to do with recorded sound, so...

One, two, three...

This is great! I've found recordings by Steve Gardham and Jim Eldon - and there are even recordings of a couple of people I remember. Thanks a lot.
