Broadside Day, Chetham's Library, Manchester UK
20th February 2016      Tickets: £15.40

The Broadside Day is the annual one-day conference for people interested in Street Literature in all its fascinating aspects - broadsides, chapbooks, songsters, woodcuts, engravings, last dying speeches, catchpennies, wonder-tales, almanacs, fortune-tellers, moral tracts, reading-made-easy alphabets, and all kinds of cheap printed material sold to ordinary people in city streets, at country fairs, and from pedlars' packs up and down the country in past centuries.

The following papers have been confirmed:

Gregg Butler
Harkness : reflecting the Northwest and making a living out of it

Jennifer Reid
Manchester's broadside ballad collections : what they hold and what they mean in today's world

Isabel Corfe
Contemporary accounts of nineteenth century broadside ballads and balladry

Stephen Basdeo
Reading Robin Hood : The form and function of garlands in the 18th century

Oskar Cox Jensen
"Oh! Cruel" : The singer in the ballad

Jonathan Cooper
The wrappers of children's chapbooks

Steve Gardham
The baffled knight : The print tradition of a well-known Child ballad

Kate Newey
Black-ey'd Susan on stage and in print

KEYNOTE SPEAKER
Christopher Marsh
Early modern broadsides and their music

I had about 10 seconds on the Eliza Carthy programme singing "Manchester's An Altered Town" from my "Manchester Ballads" CD!

I've got my tickets for the Chetham's event. Looking forward to it
