About The Site
Thirty years ago, there was a reasonable interest in English Folk Music. More recently this has not been so true, although there is still a huge following within the Folk genre. Starting off as a list of songs I had put together whilst at the University of Aston In Birmingham, I added songs that I had sung in the Meadow Folk Club in Telford and bound them into a little book for my own use.
It seemed a shame to lose some of these songs into history - a search on the internet resulted in very few of them, so I decieded to make up this web site and publish them myself.
It must be noted that although my earlier leanings were towards a strict concept of what is meant to be Folk Music, I am now far more liberal in my interpretation and hence within these pages may be found songs from other genres and written relatively recently. I hope I'm not treading on anyone's toes regarding copyright. If there is a problem, contact me using the Contact Me? link to the left.
After I did this the first time, I was contacted by the publishers of Songs From Hazzards Huzzah in Portsmouth, who offered me their collection to add to the site, which I am still in the process of doing.
