Southern Harvest Book Launch

30 May 2017 by James

Folk musicians including Jim Causley, Jackie Oates and Bryony Griffith will be joining us at the festival for the Southern Harvest book launch.

Tickets for the special event are just 8, which will be available on the day or 20 in advance for a Sunday Pass which will also include entry to see the Sam Kelly Trio, Moore Moss Rutter, Ninebarrow, Sunjay, Mitchell & Vincent and Aron Radford.

Southern Harvets brings English Folk Songs from the Hammond and Gardiner Manuscripts. The Hammond and Gardiner manuscripts are amongst the most important nineteenth-century collections of English folk song.

This omnibus volume containing The Constant Lovers and The Foggy Dew completes the series originally edited by Frank Purslow and published by the English Folk Dance and Song Society in the late 60s and early 70s. The two books have been extensively revised and updated by Steve Gardham.
