"POP" MAYNARD AT HOME
"Pop" (1872-1962) recorded by Peter Kennedy in
his cottage at Copthorne, East Grinstead, Sussex in 1955, talks about his
life and work, about bark-chopping, local gypsies, hop-picking and the Marble
Championship at Tinsley Green and sings an interesting selection of songs.
Another recording FOLKTRAX-280 made the following year by Peter has a small
group of singing friends gathered round on a Saturday night at "The Cherry
Tree", Copthorne: George HOLMAN, Tom SMART and Jean HOPKINS, as well as
the two song collectors, Mervyn PLUNKETT and Kenneth STUBBS.
