If you were not at the Song Links launch in the Main Hall of Cecil Sharp House (London) today, well you missed a special little moment. Because how often can you see Shirley Collins, Martyn Wyndham-Read, Bill Whaley and Dave Fletcher, John Kirkpatrick, Bob Copper and the Copper family (oh, and our "own" Mary Humphreys and Anahata - "treewind" to us Mudcatters) on the same stage together? As Shirley said to general applause, it was a honour just to be in the same room as Bob Copper...

But 350+ of us were there, and thoroughly enjoyed the Song Links concert to mark the launch of Martyn's project of the same name, dealing with English traditional songs that crossed the water to Australia, were adapted there and occasionally crossed back in their new form ("The Convict's Lamentation" is a splendid example of the latter).

The output of the project is mainly a 75-page booklet dealing with the subject, accompanied by 2 CDs containing 17 songs, in their English and Australian versions, sung by the above plus Martin Carthy, Norma Waterson, Nancy Kerr & James Fagan, Louis Killen, Tony Rose, Kate Burke & Ruth Hazleton, Danny Spooner, Dave de Hugard & Cathy O'Sullivan. There is also word of a video documentary being produced.

Got mine (and thanks to My Guru Always Said, also got it signed by the performers present). And I lapped up the performances on the day too. Mary and Anahata did themselves real proud; I could see John K cocking an ear at some of Anahata's playing, and Bob Copper was nodding very appreciatively at Mary's rendition of "Lovely Nancy" and Banks of the Nile". Martyn was, well, Martyn. And John K, as well as Bill & Dave dazzled. But I'd never seen the Coppers before, and the afternoon was worth it for me, just for that - a living tradition in themselves with the 200 years of passing songs down the line.

And as icing on the cake, at the launch party afterwards I also got to meet one of my favourite songwriters - Graeme Miles (of "Where Ravens Feed" fame). Graeme came down from Tyneside just to be there. Others travelled similar, or longer distances.

Definitely the high spot of the year for C-Sharp House.

Well, it was certainly the high spot of our year!

Get a copy of Song Links! We've enjoyed listening to it on the way back home this evening.

Go and hear El Greko at Stortfolk on Thursday this week. He had a treat today listening to the Copper Family and a whole host of wonderful singers that we were so honoured to be on the same platform with. We are looking forward to hearing George's creative and harmonious talents on Thursday. We will be there! Don't miss it! Here is a link:

Vanessa took some, though it might be a few days before she gets them developed (iron age technology at work). I will send you any good ones, Anahata; the bad ones I will use for extortion.

Great! If we use any of your pictures in the booklet for our new album (the graphics and layout aren't completed yet) you'll get personally credited! Likewise if I put them on the web site.

I can hardly wait for my copy - sounds like a great time was had by all. Congratulations to all concerned.

James & Nancy's Banks of the Condamine was sponsored by my club, the Loaded Dog, & the one run by the NSW Folk Fed, Almost Acoustic. James & Nancy appeared at Almost Acoustic last weekend where they put on a great show (naturally). Sandra Kerr was also with them & they're all goin to be appearing at the National Folk Festival at Easter. Hurry up easter.

Bob Bolton & I are both on the committee of another sponsor, the Bush Music Club, Australia's oldest folk club, 50 next year, sponsor of Cathie O'Sullivan's Barbara Allen.

And I mustn't forget the track sponsored by friends who are members & supporters of The Dog & Almost Acoustic, who sponsored a track for the Greens.

Hey El Greko, if it hadn't have been for the lovely Vanessa I wouldn't have gone the autograph route, she had the idea - I just walked it through with her! Thanks Vanessa :-)

A wonderful, wonderful afternoon, a unique, magic line up, and everyone on top form. I have never heard Bill and Dave work so well, and I've shared "Lincolnshire's Best Kept Secret" for a number of years now.
An enormous thanks to Martyn for making such a day possible, the only downside was that I missed Graham Miles......would have liked to say thanks to someone who via Martyn's singing has brought me so much pleasure
