So far it's been the year of the collectors. Those intrepid people who travelled far to collect the remnants of the British folk tradition and reaped a mighty bounty. We first had the Full English demonstrating and touring the rewards of the digitised on-line collections of 58,0000 songs tunes, and dance. That tour has just come to a glorious end. If you chanced to see it you can't have been less than overjoyed. It made me so happy I had no words to describe it!
Then we had Pete Coe & Alice Jones [interviewed two issues ago in the Winter edition] with the Frank Kidson show '5 Finger Frank'. A lesser known collector than the Sharp/Butterworth/Granger gang, but nearer our hearts, in that he was based in Leeds and filled his collection with Yorkshire gems. 5 Finger Frank will be at Whitby this year - don't miss it, it's a jewel of a show.
In this issue (which I should be writing about, not waffling on about past glories) we have an interview with Brian Peters who has many irons in the fire. He's touring one show called 'The Liberty to Choose' highlighting the New Penguin Book of English Folk Song.
A cursory glance at the Tykes' Towers page will highlight the ageing few of the Tykes' News team, and how many jobs are done by those few, we happy-ish few. Volunteer help with any of those disciplines would be greatly appreciated, especially the distribution part. Expenses are always offered, but traditionally refused - just sayin'.
