|We know this is not, Rod Stradling, Fred McCormick or Keith Summers, but....
The photograph actually shows the accordion player, James Brown (he can be heard,
with many others on Topic TSCD 601 Melodeon Greats). However Rod and the others at Musical Traditions are looking
to identify the fiddler and the guitarist; any ideas? If you do. e-mail the folks and let them know, several e-mail
addresses can be found at the bottom of this page.
Oh.....welcome to this page! Here we are going on, and hadn't noticed you were
here....Music Traditions has long been a part of our lives, what with providing absolutely wonderful pictures, articles and
a few complete books, and.....a complete discography of everything Topic Records has ever issued, plus, discographies of other
labels that issue folk tradition, a direct link to the page can be found on the right hand side. There's so much to see, read
and yes Music Trad, also has records for sale, check out the catalogue
There so many people to thank for providing this incredible service, it would take
a website unto itself to list everyone, so we'll settle for, Rod Stradling,
Fred McCormick and Keith Summers to name, but to all of you who've provided articles,
reviews, and everything else, Thank You, massively for all you've done and all you will do, in the future
Love and Mercy
VWML Manuscripts On-Line
Over the past few years the Library has been creating databases of the singers
and musicians found by several of the early twentieth century collectors (Sharp, Vaughan Williams, Karpeles, Hammond and Broadwood
to date). With the help of Dr Richard Butterworth, a lecturer at the University of Middlesex, we have now put these
up on the web as a trial run. We have also created a discussion group to attract comments. Please have a look
and see what you think. The site is not complete and the databases still being worked on, but it's a start.
The address is:
Malcolm Taylor - 19.8.03
