Fri 20 May: Cotswold Arts and Crafts and Folk Music : a talk by Martin Graebe

Finstock Local History Society present a talk by Martin Graebe.

Late in the Victorian era, the Arts and Crafts movement and the revival of interest in folk music both looked back to the simplicity of past ways of life. The cross-currents brought a number of individuals together and this presentation describes how villagers and the arts and crafts community sang and danced together, and how the Cotswolds led the way for the rest of England.

Martin Graebe is a researcher and writer about traditional song and song collectors. His book about the antiquarian and folk song collector Sabine Baring-Gould, published in 2017, won the Katharine Briggs Prize of the Folklore Society.

Finstock Village Hall- Refreshments, including bar from 7.30pm. talk begins at 8pm. Visitors welcome £2.50.
