i am not an expert on Sharp. Brian tell us more about the misrepresentations, i am only interested in learning more.

Briefly, Dick:
Contrary to the claim in the dialogue, Sharp did credit Louie Hooper, Lucy White and John England for all the songs they contributed to 'Folk Songs from Somerset'. There was no quarrel with Louie Hooper, who remembered Sharp very fondly after his death as a kind and generous friend. And he also paid her and her sister for their songs.

I did like the speech about the meaning and context of the songs as Louie experienced them, and agree that such feelings cannot be captured by a notation on a piece of paper. But that notation gives others the opportunity to sing and enjoy the song, and to develop their own pleasurable experiences.

The bottom line is that, although drama is allowed to take liberties and to fill in the gaps where we don't know exactly what was said and felt, I don't believe there's any excuse for presenting the opposite of what we know actually happened.

I finally listened to the Cecil Sharp play - quite moving when Louis talks about the countryside being in the songs, her relationship and memories were stored in the songs too. So writing the song down is actually impossible, but I think it is probably still worth doing even if it only provides a crude silhouette. For me, it is a reminder that life cannot easily be translated into another form without losing essence.

I enjoyed the song choice, the singing and the debates.

BBC Radio 4 Bob Dylan at 80

It Ain’t Me You’re Looking For: Bob Dylan at 80 BBC Radio 4, 17-21 May, 1.45-2pm From Monday 17 May, Professor Sean Latham presents It Ain’t Me You’re Looking For: Bob Dylan at 80.

Latham is Director of the Institute for Bob Dylan Studies at the University of Tulsa, and in this five part series, richly illustrated with music, he looks closely at the songs and draws on the vast Bob Dylan Archive, including material never broadcast before, to explore the life, work and influence of this great and elusive artist.

Dinner With Dylan BBC Radio 4, 22 May, 3-4pm Dinner With Dylan is based on a true story and delves into the passionately dedicated world of Dylan fans, or as they dub themselves ‘Bobcats’.

Jon Canter’s script recounts an evening over dinner between friends Richard Curtis, Kerry Shale, Lucas Hare and Eileen Atkins - and each will play themselves in this audio drama, a first for Curtis. Akbar Kurtha (24, Small Axe) plays the part of Sam the waiter - ever eager to please his demanding guests.

The Welsh people first arrived in Patagonia in 1865. They had migrated to protect their native Welsh culture and language, which they considered to be threatened in their native Wales. In 2004 the Welsh speakers in Argentina asked the Welsh government to provide them with Welsh TV programmes to encourage the survival and growth of Welsh in Patagonia. Wikipedia

Radio Wales sent Huw Williams to interview Pete Seeger at his home in the Hudson Valley to mark the 50th anniversary of the song Bells of Rhymney, and back to America again to visit the Rock Island Line. Matthew Bannister has to pay his own way!

Actually, Steve, Dick was correct. Speaking of 'Folk Songs from Somerset', the characters DO state angrily that 'It don't say where the songs come from!' - and that ain't true.

The play's portrayal of antagonism between Louie Hooper and Sharp is entirely fabricated. She wrote a fulsome posthumous tribute to him for the benefit of his biographers, mentioning spending 'many a happy hour' singing to him and remarking on his generosity with gifts of clothing, cash payments, and the concertina he gave Louie, which he apparently enjoyed hearing her play.

Yes, it's only a play (and did have some good points), but I hope no-one will take it's depiction of the relationship between the characters as in any way accurate.

Sharp did use folk song and the songs he collected to promote himself, as a collector as well as promting the material.
he did manage to fall out with other collectors such as mary neal and sam bennett, he described bennett as a rotter, and because of his own agendas and a personality clash collected far less from bennett than, c james madison carpenter. managed to

It does not make that claim. The claim Louie makes, and it is a valid one, is that she was not asked permission for Sharp to publish her songs. I must confess to having been guilty of the same, but I'm sure all collectors of songs are guilty in that respect. I've never ever been taken to task for this, and at least Sharp went back in order to be told to his face, if this is an accurate representation. There are lots of subtle accusations made in the play. As I said, very though-provoking.

It is not. All the sources in 'Folk Songs from Somerset' are credited, including Louie Hooper. There are no sources named in '100 English Folk Songs', which I think consists mostly of highlights from the same Somerset material. All the singers in 'Folk Songs from the Southern Appalachians' are credited.

I haven't actually listened to it yet, but if this claim is actually made then I fear the worst.

Drama on 3
Folk by Nell Leyshon

LOUIE HOOPER - Amanda Lawrence
LUCY - Amanda Wilkin
JOHN ENGLAND - Stuart McLoughlin
CECIL SHARP - Simon Russell Beale

Musical Director - Gary Yershon
Directed by Susan Roberts

"Louie Hooper lives with her sister on the Somerset Levels, and knows over 300 folk songs by heart. Cecil Sharp, who is down from London and staying in the village, overhears one of the songs. He immediately recognises its importance and is determined to gather as many songs as he can, before they are lost in the new industrialised and literate world of music halls and ballad sheets.

Louie thinks of her songs as free and changeable, owned and sung by the people. Sharp thinks the songs can be caught and arranged, saved for posterity, but he also believes they will inspire a new classical English music, and a new sense of pride in England.

,,,Sharp was seen as the godfather of folk, and a hero for saving the songs, but questions have also been raised about his appropriation of the material, his reworking and tidying of the songs, and his racial and nationalistic ideologies.

The idea for the play Folk came from an exhibition which told the stories of some of the singers. Writer Nell Leyshon discovered that Sharp had collected songs from the village she grew up in and that all his work had begun in Hambridge, a village close to hers.

Sharp collected many songs from Louie, who had an extraordinary feel for music. In an old interview recorded by the BBC, Louie described how she heard music everywhere, in the birds and in the rain falling on the roof.

The play is set at the time when a village was a whole world and contained everything needed - when Nell grew up in Somerset, it was still common to meet people who had hardly left her village. People still had traditional haymaking rituals including song."

Thanks for recent postings from Freddy, Felipa, Dave and Matt - I now have lots of good music to listen to and am happy with the presenters.

Genevieve Tudor - Radio Shropshire
Tim Walker - Radio Lincolnshire
Lynette Fay - Radio Ulster

Maybe sometime in the future, if internet bandwidth gets cheaper, they will be broadcast at a higher quality bitrate that does the music justice but I cannot see that happening given the low audience numbers.

Thursday 29 April 11.30am BBC Radio 4 Dancers at Dawn - Martin Green

On the 1st May 1987 Martin Green's dad takes him Morris dancing before dawn on Wandlebury Hill outside Cambridgeshire. Many years later, at sunrise on his twenty-third birthday, he walks home from a rave over this same hill.

This uncanny coincidence has got him thinking. To most people, Morris dancing and [raving] rave culture seem so far apart. We like to think we know what sorts of people do what. So, what do these two groups have in common that drives them out into the fields to dance at dawn? As an accordionist, producer and storyteller, Martin's own work lives somewhere between traditional music, electronic music and theatre. In 2020 he made a piece of audio theatre that linked the ancient traditions of English dancing to the birth of rave in the 1980s, which led him to draw on events from his own life, of dawn Morris dancing and sunrise raves. This documentary explores those themes. Why do we dance at dawn? Is there an innate desire to do so?

Recollecting his experiences with his father and rave friend Becky, Martin uncovers the traditions and rituals surrounding each activity. He speaks to others who have danced at dawn and seeks expert advice from [the] DJ Lee Burridge, who's famous for his full moon parties in Thailand and sunrise sets at Burning Man festival. Taking all this experience on board, Martin undertakes a solo experiment. Removing all people and connections he drives on his own, in the dark to a remote field near his house with a mission. He wants to find out what it is about the music, the dancing and the surroundings that makes dancing at dawn truly special.

Saturday 1st May 5.30am Live to your Living Room presents;
May Dawn Dance Saturday 1st May 5.30am (doors 5.15am) Yes, 5.30am!
Martin Green; Eliza Carthy; Maddy Prior; Adie Baako; and Boss Morris

Thanks, I checked it out briefly before but didn't scroll down the playlist to see that it turned into folk selection. Will be listening in future.
