‘Folk songs sung in the West Country’
(click on the artistes name to see a photo and /or a short biography)
Bob Cann is probably better known as one of the great English melodeon players (see VT138CD) who has now passed on his family tradition to his grandson Mark Bazeley (see VT139CD), but Bob was also known as a singer particularly of local songs from his beloved Dartmoor.
George Withers is still singing and is much in demand in his locality. His repertoire reflects the sort of songs Cecil Sharp noted down in rural Somerset one hundred years ago. George can also be heard on VTC4CD & VTC5CD.
The harbour town of Padstow in North Cornwall has for years been renowned for it's pub singing and Tommy Morrissey and Charlie Pitman were well known characters in the area. Here they are recorded with a gathering of family and friends giving us both serious and comic songs but all with an eye on entertainment. They can also be heard on VTC1CD & VTC5CD.
