CAROLYNE HUGHES Dorset gypsy

Carolyne HUGHES(1902-71), a gypsy queen from Dorset, sings 7 ballads & 16 songs and does some 'tuning up' (mouth-music for dancing) - and gives a vivid picture of Romany life. She is joined by husband, John, and her two daughters, Celia & Carrie Warren. They were recorded by Peter Kennedy in her caravan, near Blandford in 1968, as the farmer, the worse for drink but with his two sons on tractors, tried to move the Hughes family off his land. Album #2 is Folktrax 143.
