A-ROVING BRITAIN AND IRELAND

with Peter Kennedy

Did you know that May the 29th used to be widely celebrated - known as Oak Apple Day - such as the garland processions which take place at Castleton in the Peak District and by villagers at Wishford in Wiltshire - time to listewn to a famous country singer from Wales, Phil Tanner of Gower near Swansea - way down south to St Marys on the Isle of Scilly to meet the singing busdriver and crew of the lifeboat - a chance encounter with a group of kids street-rhyming in Liverpool - a Dorset gypsy queen is recorded in her wagon as the farmmer tries to pull her off his farm - technical hints from a classical Scots strathspey and reel fiddle merchant - rounded off with a Welsh sea shanty about Cork Harbour
