Other special events include Brian Peters and Jeff Davis in "Sharps Harvest" a show exploring songs collected by Cecil Sharp
Sharp's Appalachian Harvest
In 1916, English songhunter Cecil Sharp ventured into the heart of the Southern
Appalachians and noted down sixteen hundred old ballads, ditties and fiddle tunes,many surviving from the 18th folk music collections ever made. Brian Peters and Jeff Davis tell the story of the hardships and triumphs of this heroic quest in music, song and words, illustrated with Sharp's superb photographs of the mountain characters who kept the tradition alive.
It is not too late to apply to dance as part of the busking programme. Our aim is to fill the streets with traditional dance sides - if your team wants to dance please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
