A-ROVING BRITAIN AND IRELAND

with Peter Kennedy

In this edition a mixture of land and sea - we meet the Copper family of Rottingdean, on the Sussex coast - a singer, melodeon man and some ceremonies on Guernsey which are special to this particular Channel Island - Unexpectedly the guitar is used to accompany the Shetland fiddler Tom Anderson - and from there to the Durham coal-mining village of Birtley for some unusual repertoire from their folk club residents - and that most widely sung of all folk club anthems when it was first recorded with Irish bagpipes from the McPeake family of Belfast - Thence to work - and to some of the privately owned stone quarries on the Dorset Isle of Portland - you might say sea shanties but on dry land - not long before we hear from a Norwegian sailor wrecked on Chesil beach.
