MetadataShow full item record
Lucy E. Broadwood was closely involved with the first English Folksong Revival from the late 1880s until her death in 1929. An accomplished singer and pianist, Broadwood was an important folksong collector who also served as Secretary (and later President) of the Folksong Society and as editor of the Society's Journal. This presentation will focus on her work as a pioneer song-collector during the 1890s. It will include examples of the songs that she noted from her informants, sung by Rosaleen Gregory.
