When there, you need to move the hand over the red "location dots" until the hand changes into a pointing finger. Clicking then will take you to the recording.

Thank you again FreddyHeadey that was very helpful. I have now replaced my non-working links for these performers in the Performer List above. Your Hamish Henderson link on tobarandualchais also gives recordings where he was the collector or contributor but I will try to work out a link which just gives access to him as a performer when I have the time Thank you once again for your help.

I have been enjoying a number of the links, but I have problem with the Steve Gardham site at
https://sounds.bl.uk/World-and-traditional-music/Steve-Gardham-Collection

I find everything ok, but the songs do not play. IF the issue is something like allowing Adobe Flash to run, I may be out of luck. I flatly refuse to be required to do that when there are perfectly good players and other methods.

(I just found, by using ctrl-U, that it says "Please note flash is required to use the features of this site")

I am curious as to why they do this when the other sites I've enjoyed are more... ummm 'open'. Adobe has a very unhelpful attitude about their products, and in most cases I have alternative ways to see & use products. PDF files are easily viewed with other viewers. Adobe would seem to wish to lock the rest of the universe into their own system.

I sincerely appreciate the many links to the products of much hard work by many collectors.

This documentary film made in 1955 will be of interest to some of you. It has songs by some of the people listed in the Performer List above. It also has some stepdancing

Here's A Health To The Barley Mow


Running time17:43 Black & White Sound 1955 Blaxhall, Suffolk http://www.eafa.org.uk/catalogue/5
The film opens with shots of Ipswich docks and the approach to the pub. The rest of the film takes place inside the Ship Inn, Blaxhall giving a good illustration of the interior of a rural public house in the mid 1950s. There are some women present, although they don't feature in the solo singing. There are pewter tankards hanging above the bar; a man is smoking a small clay pipe and as well as singing and step dancing; some men are playing darts. The singing and dancing is the main feature of the film. During these there are frequent cut-away shots to the general pub scene. The chairman for the evening is Wicketts Richardson, who also sings `Fagan the Cobbler', whilst miming the actions. Other songs featured are; 'The Barley Mow' (Arthur Smith), 'The Nutting Girl' (Cyril Poacher) and 'Brave General Wolfe' (Bob Scarce). The melodeon players who feature are Fred Pearce and Bob Roberts. The film shows scenes of step dancing, which includes two women taking part. One of these women, in a suit and court shoes, is Lilly Durrant. She is dancing with Eli Durrant. Any relationship is not known. The film finishes with all singing 'God Save The Queen'.

Geoff Lawes :: Thanks for the huge list if links - must have taken you hours and hours to compile - much appreciated.

Could I offer a minor correction to your list of performers, You have Elisabeth Cronin down as Scottish.. ...How I wish I could claim her for the Scots - she's Irish, as I'm sure you know

Against Caroline Hughes you say that there are no on-line recordings available yet, but you can hear her on "the Song Carriers" (see above)at the following points

Prog 2   Track 8    The Cuckoo

Prog 3   Track 3    Liltin

Prog 10 Track 8    Barbra Allan

I'll maybe see if I can isolate these tracks ans put them up on here.

If folk then decide they would like to hear more of Caroline then they couldn't do better than to buy or download her songs from Rod Stradling at Musical Traditions. The download at £4 is a bargain and comes complete with notes and comments
--------------------------------------------
Caroline Hughes
Sheep-Crook and Black Dog
(MTDL665-6)
2 CDs, 48 page booklet, 90 tracks, 142 mins duration.

This legendary Gypsy singer is thought by many to be the finest exponent of the art. In addition, we have a few songs from her husband, brother-in-law, daughter, and Emily Baker, another singer in their Traveller group. These are the rarely heard 1963 and 1966 recordings made by Ewan MacColl, Peggy Seeger and Charles Parker, which we're proud to make widely available for the first time. All Caroline Hughes' best-known songs are here, plus many more including eight never before heard, which have been allocated new Roud Numbers. If the fragmentary nature of some of her songs displeases you, just enjoy the wonderful tunes, the variable verse lengths, long and short lines, and her brilliant musicianship.
-------------------------------------------------

Buy it and enjoy

It might well be that the complete MacColl/Seeger/Parker recordings could be posted but it would be good if folk initially supported Rod Stradlings Mustrad efforts and paid for his work

My apologies to Peter Laban and Jim Carroll because in the first few days of this Permathread I was very preoccupied with correcting the mistakes and getting things working properly and I didn’t give enough attention to their posts about the Clare County Library. Yes, you can hear Jim Carroll’s recordings on the Clare County Library site. When I first went to the site nothing happened when I clicked on the song titles down the left of the screen. I have just returned to the site and when I clicked on “ Playlist (Clare songs only): “ down on the right I was asked
to allow Adobe Flash to run. Having allowed that, when I clicked on the song title I was then presented with a page of lyrics and a player control which gives access to the sound recording. I hope this helps and thanks to Jim and Peter.

Thank you for that Jim . is there a way of hearing all these recordings on-line? Here is a site called County Songs which has a lot of irish songs where clips of the recordings can be heard http://www.countysongs.ie/counties/

Thanks for that Peter - delighted to hear it

Clare library isn't adding to the website but it's not wholly unsupervised. Last year the server that held the photo collection went down, hard work is going into getting the collection up and running again 'in the cloud'.

I spoke to Maureen and Anthony recently and, while retired, they seemed to be keeping an eye on developments. I don't think the online resources they set up will be allowed to disappear quietly.

PS.. just a reminder about 'all eggs in one basket'...

Youtube is highly vulnerable to malicious complaints about content,
resulting in instant deletions of videos and entire channels..
Appeals to Youtube admin tend to be stressful and futile.
They automatically side with the complainers no matter how unjust.

There are alternative video sites,
but these have become very popular safety nets far right video bloggers
aware they may be inevitably banned by youtube...

Geoff
As you probably know most of my collection is on the BLSA website. There is mountains of stuff on there, all freely available without having to join anything.

Also there are some free tracks on the Mustrad website which could be accessed and linked to. You might need to ask Rod's permission but he'd be daft to refuse as it's all good publicity for his full album sales.

There are a few source singer tracks on our Yorkshire Garland website
yorkshirefolksong.net and there's someone on there called Geoff Lawes. Ever heard of him?

Thanks for that Peter
I have to say, we live in fear of what is going to happen to the site when the Library moves
At present it is unsupervised, so we are unable to add some of the Clare recordings we have found since it went up.
We have never managed to include the interviews we did with the singers, or the storytelling material
Our Library and collection is bequeathed to Limerick Uni., World Music Centre and they have mooted the idea of making out Traveller recordings available
Fingers (and most other parts) crossed

I agree entirely PFR - but at present I think we need to make a start while we all have our teeth and can remember what we had for breakfast

Jim - various models have been tried since the internet became popular.


The worst are the secretive elite exclusive sharing groups,
where ego and personal status of collector's, and the size of their hoard,
matter more than sharing the music...

The easiest were the blogs which provided well researched and informative open and free downloads to any who wanted them..

Unfortunately the latter, are the easiest targets to be taken down by copyright enforcers...

There needs to be a fair compromise of accesibility for all,
and protection from malignant spoilsports who get a kick from informing 'the authorities'...

Some time ago we were discussing making some of our own collections generally available - it got somewhat bogged down in copyright issues
Maybe it's time we revisited the idea of pooling our own efforts and resources and setting up our own online exchange system
The more I go into it, the more I favour PCloud
Not really sure of how to go about it - anybody fancy trying their hand at belling the cat ?
