"In March 2011, Steve Knightley, Jackie Oates, Andy Cutting, Caroline Herring, Jim Moray, Patsy Reid, Leonard Podolak and Kathryn Roberts gathered together on a Shropshire farm.

The artistic brief was to create new works that has a 'resonance and relevance' to legendary song collector Cecil Sharp whose work in the early years of the 20th century helped lay the foundations of the modern folk revival.

The result is a CD "The Cecil Sharp Project" and a live show featuring all of the above folk artists."

If you'd like to hear the some of the songs collected by Sharp, Brian Peters and Jeff Davis will present a complementary show at the Cheltenham Folk Festival. 'Sharp's Appalachian Harvest' features the songs and music collected by Cecil Sharp in Appalachia in 1915-1918.
