Quite apart from the recordings of Bert Lloyd, which may not be to everyone's taste even if they're into traditional songs, to see him live was just wonderful. He had such enthusiasm, and an almost impish humour, and made you really listen to the songs he sang, or the music that he collected. Fantastic!

Jack, have you heard Bert Lloyd singing The Captain's Apprentice? The power and starkness of the song is really suited to Lloyd's voice, I think. It's a song that's rarely been covered in the revival, and Jim Moray decided to do it for the RVW day at Cecil SHarp House last year - it has since entered into his regular repertoire, and he makes a great job of it.

I don't know how likely you are to find similar Albanian music while you're there, but I hope you are successful. On a related tangent, Dessislava Stefanova of the London Bulgarian Choir sang with Frankie Armstrong at the Bert Lloyd day at Cecil Sharp House last year. She described hearing his record of Bulgarian folk music when she was young, and how well and accurately they delved into her musical tradition - and how surprised she was to learn that a foreigner had made such a brilliant, representative collection. Which is quite a tribute.

From Jack: "Given what Lizzie usually does to other people's threads, no. Time for her to see what it feels like..."

Nope, nearly every thread I've ever started in the 'music' section gets taken deliberately off course, but that's OK, that's what conversation does, goes off at tangents, and often interesting things are to be discovered. Sometimes though, it just gets more than a little boring when the Minutia Brigade kick in bigtime, as they've done in this thread.

I rarely join in the music threads these days, because if I do, again, the threads go off course, into personal attacks. Strangely, I'm left alone in the BS section, probably because there are far more American and Canadians, Below Stairs, and nearly all of them are nice, laid back people who don't get their knickers on backwards in a rage if one tiny thing is reported wrongly.

I think it'd be a great idea to start a thread on A.L. Lloyd and then talk about Kate, as I mentioned above. Try it Jack, and see what happens, and then please note that I'm not throwing things out of my pram in this thread, merely linking to Kate again here and there. and letting you all talk Allloydadinfinitum,'cos that's what turns you on. :0)


From Crow Sister: "Jeez Lizzie, you are so driven and able to err, get people to do exactly what you want...
If only we could get you on board with the whole traditional music is interesting and worthy of support thing, you'd move fecking mountains!"


I would Crow Sister. Indeed, I DID, back on the BBC, shortly after I discovered the music of Coope Boyes & Simpson. I turned that board into a meeting place every Monday evening, when Lester Simpson and Mick Peat's radio programme 'Folkwaves' came on. We'd all listen to it 'live' on air, as at that time, Folkwaves didn't have a Listen Again button.

After watching the success of that thread, seeing the responses it drew, hearing that Mick and Lester themselves were watching that thread from time to time, the BBC finally gave in to the pressure I started up to give Folkwaves a 'Listen Again' button, and it happened.
It's still there to this day.

Of course, the BBC then got a little miffed, when the Folkwaves thread reached over 500 posts, becoming almost a folk cult in a way, albeit a small one...and they closed it down, with Mel stating that the BBC board couldn't take threads that went beyond 500 posts...The biggest lie going, of course, because there are many on the Music Club board that are well over 1,000. They just got miffed because folks were talking about that show and not their one, the Smooth Ops one, of course, as they run the F&A board and they do the Mike Harding show, which barely got a mention back then.

So...they closed it down. Here's the thread I started about that...I'm the 'number' in the first post.

The 2 BBC Folkwaves Threads


I've spoken about a great deal about traditional artists, songs, music, gigs, festivals etc..but 'they who must be obeyed' would have you think that the ONLY people I ever talk about are 'they who must no longer be mentioned' and Seth Lakeman. That's been the whole point of their campaign...

They don't *want* me talking about traditional music, because it's *theirs*...

Here you go,Live From Sidmouth - 2005 about the first ever Sidmouth Folk Week, when I decided to become a Roving Reporter (with a sense of humour) ;0)

And here, the now infamous Myspace thread, started just as Myspace was starting to get popular...Again, started by me, but the BBC have removed my name from every single post I ever posted, along with many of the thread titles, and closed many of them down too, as I think they did with this one also...Why? ALL it was about was spreading the word about people's music. (Oh, and Lizzie Bashing, of course) ;0)

BBC Myspace thread




Kate Rusby has, still to this day, not been completely forgiven by some in the folk world for DARING to be in Equation with Seth, his two brothers, Cara Dillon and Katherine Roberts. If you don't believe me, read what Colin Irwin has to say in his wonderully amusing book 'In Search of Albion' where he has an entire chapter about Seth Lakeman. Kate did go part way to getting some respect back, because she chose not to go with Equation to the USA when they were signed up to Warner Brothers...but the rest of them were banished from the Inner Folk Sanctum from that moment on...and still, to this day, haven't been forgiven by many.

It's vindictive rubbish...

"Unfortunately the people you do support have already got multiple oodles of support... Your efforts are wasted and unappreciated. Just come over to the fusty side! Pop on your brown sandles and belong.. you so know you want to...!"

Yes, they have. But I found Seth's music when hardly anyone knew about him. I knew, the first moment I heard him play that he'd be a star, said so too...and again, didn't they just hate it all. I'm so pleased he's got to where he should be...but there are many more who should also be there...

The thing is, with the English folk world, is that you are NOT supposed to be enthusiastic about this music, because if you are, then you're branded a 'fanatical fan' a 'stalker' and you're ridiculed beyond belief. I decided to bypass all that total crap, put up with it, shout out against it...

And then...one day, I thought..."Sod it! If they want their music hidden, then let them hide it away!"

So I removed my Live From Sidmouth blog from my myspace page, because one of those now so involved in Sidmouth is also one of those who's managed to put me off one helluva lot of folk music, turning it into one of the bitchiest worlds I've ever come across.

As I've said over and over..the English have a great deal to learn from the Americans and the Canadians..and it saddens me further that one of those who've given me such grief is of course American, but then they've adopted the English outlook 100%, so I can't really hold that against the US.

In short, Kate Rusby makes very beautiful music, and I love talking about folks who's music I love, be they 'famous' or 'unheard of' If music touches me, it touches me, and I've no problem with some who are further above the parapet than others.   If their music deserves mention, then mention it I will...in my own way, in my own words, in the way that is totally natural to me.   No-one has to read it....

But yes, thank you for your words, for I could have 'moved feckin' mountains'. I know I still can do. For now though, I'm just taking a rest from all the rubble that gets thrown down upon me from time to time, from those who feel those mountains belong to them.

"And you do not own the music that people love" - Mad Lizzie. ;0)


And now...back to Kate Rusby :0)

Given what Lizzie usually does to other people's threads, no. Time for her to see what it feels like. Besides, Rusby is boring and Lloyd wasn't.

I might be in northern Albania briefly this autumn (got a holiday in Montenegro booked, it's a short trip from there to Shkodra). Anyone know how easy it is to find CDs of the sort of music Lloyd found in Albania? Or am I only going to run into electro-pop?

Lloyd's Albanian collection for Topic

I'm more interested in the southern (Tosk) stuff, the polyphonic choral singing that's like the Greek music of Ipiros.

If you can get your hands on them, read the sleeve notes of the countless albums that Bert Lloyd recorded. Then count the number of times that he states that he "devised" a particular song or set a certain tune to an existing set of words. The fact that over the years people who have never heard of A.L.Lloyd are singing these songs does him credit.

"Rest in peace" is pretty unhelpful for somebody who is on the sort of search I was describing - if you've heard of some fantastic miner-songwriter from Durham, you're going to want to find as much of his work as possible so you can get new songs to sing, and find out what you can about him as a person. You are then going to feel cheated if he turns out to have been imaginary.

There is one good honest reason why Lloyd might have invented imaginary sources. A mineworker who'd written something like "The Blackleg Miner" would probably be less interested in getting credited by name for it among miners the length of Britain than in making damn sure his own mine manager never found out he was responsible for it. I've no idea if protecting sources was ever Lloyd's motivation, but I'm sure the idea has crossed the minds of people trying to find out more.

if Scholars have nothing better to do,than waste their time on this,it is a sad day,I just hope that taxpayers money wasnt used to fund this kind of scholarship.

There is a pretty obvious positive reason for wanting to investigate this - if Lloyd was telling the truth about where he got those disputed songs, there were a whole lot of songwriters out there we know nothing about and who did some really good stuff. So you'd want to track them down and find out what else they created, surely?

That simply MUST have been the primary motivation for people getting into this. And understandably people who went off searching with their hopes raised by Lloyd's work would be a bit pissed off at being sent on a wild goose chase and would want to make sure nobody else made the same mistake.

nothing has been proved

But by your own admission, nothing can be proved! So we go on the weight of the evidence - what seems more likely?

Several songs collected by Bert Lloyd seem to follow this pattern:

- Scruffy, reasonably good song appears in sources dated 18-something
- Lloyd produces a really good song which no one has seen before, but which is recognisably related to the earlier song
- Lloyd claims that his song had actually been around for ages, and the earlier song was really a variant of it

What seems more likely? (And again, this has nothing to do with whether they're good songs or not.)

Sorry,It is no more than jumping to conclusions,nothing has been proved,just because a song was only collected once,proves nothing,neither does the fact a similiar inferior song existed,it is a possibilty that Lloyds singer rewrote the song ,it is also possible that the two songs existed.
yes ,doubt has been cast ,but nothing is proven.inmy opinion Scholars should find better things to do with their time such as:
now lets look at the song of The Dawning Of The Day,and Raglan Road [Patrick Kavanagh]is there any proof that Kavanagh nicked or was inspired by the existing song?

Dick, it really, really isn't about judging the songs themselves. As it happens, I think Bert Lloyd wrote some lovely songs, even the ones he claimed were traditional. If they're good songs (and they are), by all means sing them.

All this really relates to is trying to properly attribute the songs as either Trad or not. I'm afraid that what I've read and heard through several respected sources, not just the two scholars cited in the article above, is pretty convincing evidence.

It's not an attack on Bert Lloyd, nor is it meant to disrespect his great contribution to the folk revival, it's simply an appropriate re-assessment of SOME of his work, based on what we now know.

Who cares?

Some people do, some don't. For those who do, them's the facts. For those who don't, why don't you find a topic that you do care about?

"Iwill be back to talk about the missing ballads"
this will be the only authorised version, of course...

Personally I'll go to the source, The Charles Parker Archive for my information

Bert Lloyds claims have not been disproven

Bert Lloyd claimed that when Robert Anderson wrote Jenny's Complaint, he was writing down a "set" (i.e. one version) of an 18th-century song. This is not true and never has been.

"Telling madlizziecornish that facts are meaningful and important and that ordering of priorities matters may well be a complete waste of time and breath.
Needs to be done though.

Kate at Cambridge 2007 being interviewed about 'Awkward Annie' and singing 'The Blooming Heather'


Kate talking, exuberantly, about her love of traditional music, and how she was told the stories at bedtime...how they were like mini films to her...

Kate has 'magic' :0)
