a five part interview

When this album was first
released in 1971, it was regarded
as adventurous, combining a
traditional English singer with
25 musicians, some from
 a folk background, others from
the fields of contemporary rock
and early music.

...hmmm... We wandered down
this lane, and took a left turn
somewhere, and ended up here.
There are a few familiar names,
 but for the most part, the singers
featured  are unknown, or to
be more correct, known only to
those who have, to quote a page
title from another of our websites,
An Open Ear On The Past.
this from our
Rise Up Like The Sun website

The story of Bob Copper
and the Copper Family,
one of the stalwarts of
English folk music, and the
remarkable tale of their
songs' continuing influence.

Station St. Lewes, East Sussex
The events that take place
every Thursday in the
well-appointed upstairs room
 at the Royal Oak
are intended to encourage
the performance of
traditional music and song,
and do they ever, so if you're
in their neck of the woods
find your way there

The music is quite simply, a joy
to listen to, wonderful tunes, played
with bags of energy and bounce.
The playing has that nice raw edge
... ...the record is a delight
