I remember meeting up with Peter at chippenham festival, him showing me his empty gig diary and saying to me that he did not think Ireland would be his salvation, this was the year i was moving to ireland, and a few moths before he committed suicide, he turned up at a spot i was doing and afterwards gave me a compliment [for him] you are not bad, we discussed one or two other performersand the changing folk scene
A dynamic performer an accomplished songwriter, a very good artist and sadly missed

Resident at Bacca Pipes I believe but that was well before I was anywhere near Keighley. I first saw Peter at Whitby and was as enamoured by his flat cap, concertina and Rolling Stones T-shirt as I was with his music :-)

I have been surprised by the large number of communications that I have had in response to this article; all favourable with most offering extra information that might have been useful; others which had information that was probably too sensitive to share. Anyway the title of the piece, Peter Bellamy and me, indicates that it was my personal account of this complicated man.

Simply enjoyed the PB article in LT ~ Peter was very knowledgeable man of many sides ~ Kipling and East Anglian trad singers among them ~ when he came to Barnsley he sat playing blues before he did his trad gig ~ saw him at Whitby ff a time or two and elsewhere ~ he died 1991 as did Keith Marsden his friend

I think his work the transports was very good and in my opinion, outstanding.
I rather dislkie Kipling and his imperialistic jingoistic propaganda, withe the exception of the jungle book, although Peter found some good tunes for the poetry.
Undoubtedly if he sawme write the above it would provke a furious outburst one rather charming aspect of Peter was that you could have a heated argument and still remain good friends

Hello, John - hope you and yours are OK and coping well.

As far as I know there is no digital version of the magazine on the subscription page which is at https://www.livingtradition.co.uk/subscribe and they have an online contact form at https://www.livingtradition.co.uk/contact

A message from Fiona the editor expresses concern about how they are going to manage during this difficult time. This would have been the issue that had all the adverts for summer festivals which was a major source of income for them, so any advertising, donations, subscriptions and even single issue purchase would be very welcome.

Thanks Vic, and likewise, I hope you, Tina and all family/friends are keeping well;

I'll look at subscribing to Living Tradition - perhaps we could have a big push for that plus maybe a crowdfunding campaign? Having already lost fRoots, it's even more important to help keep them afloat.

I can't quite manage a subscription (mailed to Canada) but I do try to
purchase individual issues.
I've just gone and ordered the last two issues from the website.
Looking forward to reading your article on Peter Bellamy, Vic.
(as I've enjoyed many other articles by you in both fRoots and
Living Tradition.)

Best wishes to all.

Peter stayed with us when he did a gig at the local folk club. Spent most of the time talking about his concern at getting "back" on the circuit after a prolonged absence . Laughed at his "Bottle Neck Concertina" tale from Doc Watson.

Hi everyone,

Fiona here - editor of The Living Tradition.
Vic brought this thread to my attention (thanks Vic). Glad you are enjoying his article about Peter.

Just to explain that we don't have an online version of the magazine (as yet), and we don't put all of our content online - though our website features lots of reviews, the occasional article, and lots of other information. We rely on subscriptions to keep the mag afloat, so that is why we urge people to buy the magazine if they are interested. So please do that if you can.

Having said that, since there is such interest in this one, and since I know that a lot of people don't have any spare cash at the minute, I have added it to our website (though it is text-only) at https://www.livingtradition.co.uk/magazine/articles. So feel free to read it from there, and if you like the type of content you find, and if you are able, maybe you might buy a hard copy too, just to support us a bit.

As some of you have said, this is a rough time for the magazine (as well as so many others who have had things cancelled and lost work for the foreseeable future). We plan to keep publishing to our usual schedule if we can, and already have made a good start on our next issue, which will be out in June. And we are really grateful for all the messages of support that we have received so far - it is humbling to know that the magazine means so much to you.

I am contactable through our website if I can help anyone further.
Best from beautiful Donegal,
Fi.

While I'm here (and I hope it's OK to do this here), at present we are offering a special rate 'coronavirus' advert price for anyone who has anything they want to promote in our June or August issues. £50 (& VAT) for an eighth page colour (and we can help with artwork if you want). If you are interested get in touch at admin@livingtradition.co.uk.

These are very generous offers from Fiona at a time when she must be worried about the future of her excellent publication. I am glad that people can read the article that we are discussing but please bear in mind the precarious state of the magazine's finances and how much poorer we would all be be if it were not able to continue.

I will provide a clickable link to the list of online articles - https://www.livingtradition.co.uk/magazine/articles
I will also be so bold as to draw your attention to two other articles at the top of that list, both written by me, on Ben Paley and Sandra Kerr with the same proviso of finding a way to support The Living Tradition financially.
