Steve Roud in his new book, Folk Song in England (essential reading for anyone interested in the folk song movement in England) includes an acknowledgement of my work which he told me had been ‘a boon’ when researching about the role of the Folk-Song Society.

I am pleased to have been asked to send copies of my recordings for inclusion in the British Sound Library’s Archive.

I have recently agreed to write a chapter on the foundation of the Folk-Song Society for a for a forthcoming publication by Routledge (proposed title Companion to Folk Performance).

I am currently working on an article about what effect the enclosures had on the rise of poaching and how accurately are such activities portrayed in songs about poaching and poachers.
