Thread Name: George Butterworth (Musician-died 1916)
Subject: George Butterworth
Just back from a concert in York. While walking from my hotel on the Mount this morning I came across a blue plaque to George Butterworth, Music composer and folk song arranger, who died at teh Somme in 1916. I didn't know anything about him so looked him up when I got home and found this lovely tribute on You Tube. All sorts of other stuff as well, all very enjoyable. Am I on my own in not knowing about him?
