BBC Radio 2's Cecil Sharp Collection

True, we are the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.  But Cecil Sharp was one of England's foremost folklorists, and founded the English Folk Song and Dance Society - his approach to folk music was influential upon many of his peers in the early twentieth century, so it must be of interest to folklorists everywhere - it's part of the history of song collecting.

Radio 2 wants listeners' submissions of their recordings of music that Cecil Sharp collected.  So if a Cecil Sharp specimen is now part of your repertoire, that's what Radio 2 wants to hear about.  Read more here.
