A fascinating read about the journey of English folk music from Vaughan Williams to the modern day.
Its a lovely big chunky book full of tales of famous and obscure characters, myths, folklore and landscape that colour English 'folk' music.
I'm on my second reading at the mo.

I've read that three times now. It's great, despite its inconsistencies and the last part which just seems like him shoehorning things that suit him into his theory - Kate Bush....Full of ideas for avaenues to explore and a real sense of treading among ghosts and along quiet byways.

Am reading this

a great songwriter and poet, who ahem couldn't keep it in his pants

I struggle to use 'Music' and 'Kate Bush' in the same sentence never mind Folk music :roll:
Vacuous posh tart with more than a passing vocal resemblance to Beryl Reid :D

Love this Miniture Street Art.

Saw it on TV. Loads on the Internet and they had some in the Tate a while back.

Downloadable pdfs of art catalogues published by the Metropolitan Museum of Art

For Pre-Raphaelite fans the Greville Winthrop collection (exhibited at the National Gallery) and the Victorian Artist-Dreamer Burne-Jones catalogue (exhibited in Birmingham) are worth downloading.

See, this is the point in time where Rod was both the most talented and the most beautiful man in the universe... When I say that to the younglings at work, that there was a point in time where this was the case, honestly, really, there was, they look at me with revulsion and pity. But that doesn't make me wrong. x

Managed to fit in four visits (company pay for my ticket and the Tate is reasonably close to where I work).

I downloaded the Burne Jones, Winthrop collection and the Walk around the Cloisters from that site and need to explore more. Looks good on my iPad.

I've not been to the Lady Lever, but Jan H and I visited the Walker prior to an RH gig a few years ago.
