Roy Palmer

Roy has produced many books of traditional songs and broadside ballads, often using the songs to provide an insight into social history.

We were immensely honoured to be asked to record a CD to accompany Roy's book A Taste of Ale. Amongst other books by Roy from which we have sourced material are

A Touch on the Times: Songs of Social Change 1770- 1914 Penguin Education, 1974

Folk songs collected by Ralph Vaughan Williams J M Dent, 1983 (now republished as Bushes and Briars Llanerch Press, 1999)

Songs of the Midlands
