GUEST,Cats Folk Music and History (33) RE: Folk Music and History 03 Jun 08


Many years ago I ran a course with the keeper of local history at Plymouth Museum called 'Plymouth, the Story and the Song'. We visited local historical spots and told the stories and sang the songs associated with that particular place. One memorable evening was spent sitting in the candle lit light glass of Smeatons Tower on Plymouth Hoe with a storn raging outside doing the stories and songs of the sea.   Eventually a TV series called the Phoenix and the Leviathon was made, based on the idea, which we did the music for. I also ran much the same thing based on the songs and dances in Thomas Hardy novels. Both courses were run under the auspices of WEA and were sold out many times over.
