SCAMP, Charlie - Kent\ gypsy singer & talk\ 1954 - Charlie Scamp and his family were camped at Chartham Hatch, near Canterbury, Kent, where they had been given the care and wood- cutting rights of a thickly wooded area - they buy 8 acres of wood and three cut it before March 31st - The Scamps had already attracted some public interest, as Charlie's brother, Ted, had been featured in Rupert Croft-Cooke's book about English Romanies, "The Moon in my Pocket". The author had, for the purpose of his book, purchased a horse-drawn wagon and had travelled around the country learning the traveller's way of life. Ted accompanied him for most of his journeying, but at some point, without any warning, he just went off and left him, to continue his travels on his own. It was Charlie and Ted Scamp that told Peter the whereabouts of Phoebe SMITH, an outstanding gypsy singer featured on FOLKTRAX FTX-100. Although Phoebe had herself mainly travelled in the Kent area, and annually took part in the hop-picking, she had moved to Suffolk and was living with her husband, Joe, general and scrap-dealer, near Woodbridge, where she was building herself a bungalow - photos by PK 0184-7 (4) -- rec by PK, Pilgrim's Way, Chartham Hatch, nr Canterbury 15/1/54: RPL 19964 "Barbara Allen" & "Lakes of Coolfin" - RPL 19965 "Come father (Sweet William) "My Pretty Fair Maid" (17 come Sunday) "Blacksmith courted me" & "Folkestone Murder" - RPL 19966 "Atching Tan" Cant * Romany dialogue with transl by Charlie & his brother, Ted - FTX-031 "Atching Tan" - FTX-140 with Sussex gypsies - FTX-441 Romany speech

SHARP, Cecil - (b 22 Nov. 1859, London; d London 28 June 1924) English folk music collector, author, musician, educationalist. Educated at Cambridge, worked in Australia; taught in England 1892-96, then principal of Hampstead Conservatory until '05. Saw the Headington Oxford Morris side dance acc. by William Kimber on concertina 1899; heard vicarage gardener, John England, sing "The Seeds Of Love' Hambridge, Somerset 1903; set about collecting with missionary zeal: first publication was Folk Songs From Somerset in five parts 1904-9, first three co-credited to Charles Marsh; Songs Of The West 1905 and English Folk-Songs For Schools co-edited with Rev. Sabine Baring-Gould. He was prime mover in founding of The English Folk Dance Society 1911, which after his death almalgamated, in 1932, with The Folk Song Society, founded in 1898; which became The English Folk Dance and Song Society, who have their HQ in Regents Park, called Cecil Sharp House. He contributed songs and dances to Granville Barker's London production of Midsummer Night's Dream 1914; visited USA several times collecting Anglo-American ballads (see also Francis James Child); he was accompanied 1916-18 by amanuensis Maud Karpeles. The EFDS held their summer schools at Stratford-on- Avon from 1909, directed by Cecil Sharp and Maud accompanied Barker to New York for Sharp's arrangement of the music for Shakespeare's "Midsummer's Dream". His "English Folk Song: Some Conclusions" 1907 was the first major treatise on the subject; and Maud edited the fourth edition 1965. His work based on his American field trips 1914-18 included. "English Folk Songs From The Southern Appalachians" and "Nursery Songs From The Appalachian Mountains 1917-23. An example of continuity in folk is the Ritchie family: Sharp collected songs from them in 1917 and John and Alan Lomax recorded from them in the 1930s for the Library of Congress; Jean Ritchie, unborn at the time of Sharp's visit, became a leading figure in post-war USA folk revival. Sharp worked more and more in education, which he regarded as vital, and collaborated with the illustrator, A P Oppé, on "The Dance: An Historical Survey of Dancing in Europe", published after his death. Miss Karpeles worked with Ralph Vaughan Williams and Douglas Kennedy, who succeeded Sharp and became Director of the EFDSS. She wrote a biography of "Cecil Sharp" 1933 with A H Fox Strangeways (the author of the groundbreaking "Music Of Hindostan" 1914 but the revised edition of Sharp 1967 was under her name alone). "The Crystal Spring"": English Folk Songs Collected by Cecil Sharp 1987 published by Oxford University Press was edited by her. Sharp's significance lies not only in research but in the impetus he gave to wider appreciation of folk music; his disquisition also lived on in the work of composers like Vaughan Williams, Gustav Holst, Percy Grainger and George Butterworth - JEFDSS 1959 Centenary of birth (22/11/59) - various articles - ED&S 33/1 19721 p8 Mike Yates & p87 photo with bicycle - FMJ Dave Harker -- Talk about him by William KIMBER of Headington Oxon & Billy WELLS of Bampton, Oxfordsh rec Dec 1937: RPL 9844 (78)/ Talking to Maud Karpeles rec by PK 4/12/51: FTX-383 - Bungay Primary School rec 1959: RPL LP 25951 - Talk about him by Maud Karpeles 22/11/59 & Mrs A Wheeler rec Dublin 16/11/59: RPL 26003 - Talk about him visiting Shep Haden: Bert Wiltshire, Bampton, Oxfordsh rec by PK 14/2/57: 5"RTR-0966/ RPL LP 26368/ FTX-451 - Talk about him and building of Cecil Sharp House by Douglas Kennedy: FTX-481-493 - Talk about him by Mrs Sheilor Meadows of Dan, Patrick Co Va USA 1976: FTX-903 - John LANGSTAFF with Martin BEST (gtr): EMI CLP-1833 1965 - Tony ROSE Ballads LEADER-2014 - LEADER 2024 Songs - Dave BURLAND: LEADER 2029 - Roger NICHOLSON/ Jake WALTON/ Andrew CRONSHAW: LEADER 2094 - Ian CAMPBELL: TOPIC 12-T-110 1964 incl "Row bullies row" shanty coll on board ship - Bernard WRIGLEY (conc): TOPIC 12-TS-211 1971 (Curry Rivel Wassail) Frankie ARMSTRONG: TOPIC 12 TS-216 1972 "Saucy Sailor" -- 1912 film of Cecil Sharp, George Butterworth & the Karpeler sisters, Helen and Maud with Sharp nearly going wrong in the dance: FTV#34

SLADE, Stanley - Bristol\ Shantyman\ 1943 - Every time there was a radio broadcast of sea-shanties by professional singing groups like the West of England Male Chorus, Stanley would march into Broadcasting House in Whiteladies Road, Bristol, and would indulge in some fairly strong seafaring language. So, when Peter came to the West of England BBC to develop folk music programmes in the region, he was requested to go and see Mr Slade and use some diplomacy to explain the need for the BBC to consider its broad spectrum of sensitive listeners. Instead, after visiting his house, full of precious objects gathered on voyages around the world, Peter soon got Stanley into the studio, with a "property capstan", in order to make a series of "authentic" broadcasts. At first choruses were provided by the West of England Male Voice Choir but Peter soon found he could get more authentic results with less voice-conscious singers, by just going out into Whiteladies Road and inviting into the studio a gang of men. Arrangements were made with HMV to record him at Abbey Road, but alas, he died only a few days before the recording date. However the Education Dept. of the Gramophone Company did issue one 78 rpm disc made from some of the recordings on this cassette -- RPL 4612-4 rec Bristol 8/6/42 with chorus led by Tom Purvis & Phil GREEN (p-acc) - RPL LP 6018 rec Bristol 2/7/43 - 7"RTR#0001-3 rec by PK on Scophony-Baird Tape-recorder, Bristol, March 1950 - COLUMBIA SL-206 1952/ ROUNDER CD-1741 1998 - RPL 17603-4 & RPL 17610 with Peter KENNEDY, Sandy MOIR (acc) & Haymakers: - FTX-207 - FTX-255 "As I roved out" radio prog 1956 "Kangaroo" - FTX-515 "On board of the Kangaroo"

He remembers seeing the first German prisoners of War being marched back to Axbridge, the nearby market town, where they were interned in the old Workhouse. He learned to play the harmonica from his father and his first contact with folkdancing was through the headmistress, Mrs. Wood. Later W.S.Woodgate took over and Jim played for the School Morris team until he left in 1928. During the Second World War Jim worked on the railway and it was then he became active again playing for local concerts and camp- raising funds.

"I have always been interested in the very old songs, even as a very small child. I would rather listen to my brother, my uncle or my granny, than go out and play with the other kids. In fact I got most of my oldest songs and ballads from my eldest brother, Donald, and my uncle, Henry, who was 91 when he died. My father too was an exceptionally fine singer, but he died when I was still a baby, but I managed to learn most of his songs from Donald.

STEWART, Davie - Angus\ street singer/ p-acc/ storyteller\ 1956 - (1901-1972) was born April 1st, at Windmill Street, Peterhead. His father, Robert, and his grandfather too, were general hawkers and tinsmiths, so Davie was brought up as a "traveller", spending the better part of a year on the road. Between the ages of 4 and 9 he spent only the winters at school in places such as Aberdeen and Fraserburgh. He started to get known as a singer from the age of 10 when his family were working in the farm bothies. Davie was 13½ when the 14-18 War began. Twice he tried to join the Gordons but he was called back by his father. The third time, at the age of 16, he was sent to France where he was wounded on 3 occasions. However he joined a pipe band and was tutored by the great Scottish piper, John McLennan. When he came out of the Army, at the age of 20, he resumed his travelling life, singing and hawking, combining farm-life in the Aberdeenshire bothies with playing the accordion and singing. 2 years later he fell in with another great travelling man, Jimmy McBeath (FOLKTRAX 058, 059 & 060) - photos by PK 0260-0265 some with Kirsty & some with Hamish Henderson -- rec by Alan Lomax, Dundee, Angus 1951 CAEDMON TC-1142 #23 "Bogie's Bonny Belle"/ EMBER FA-2055 1968 "Heather & Glen" "Mc Pherson" - rec by PK, Dundee, Angus 23/6/55: 5"-RTR-1119-1123 incl "McPherson"(song & on accordion) "Tarves Rant" Drumdelgie" "Hanging from a beam" (with daughter Jeannie (aged 17) "Galway Shawl" (with Jeannie) also "Kirsty", sister, Susan Hutchison: "Laird o Drum"): "Hanging from a beam" & Galway Shawl (with Davie) rec by AL: 7"RTR-0684-6 - EMI DLP-1143 1956 Folk Song Today 10"LP rec by PK "Barnyards o Delgaty" - FTX-023 "Barnyards" - FTX-025 "Rothsay O" - FTX-031 Beggar Wench/ I binged avree/ McPherson/ Tramps & Hawkers - FTX-180 solo album - FTX-260 Life story with songs"- FTX-441 Tinker cant - FTX-460 Bothy Ballads - FTX-461 Two Tinker tales: Piper stolen by fairies when returned he no longer remembered his children & Widow woman carried off in a silent coach by "The Burkers" - FTX-462 His own story on the roads of Scotland & ireland & 2 songs "I'm often drunk" "Jolly Tinker" - TOPIC 12-T-179 1968 - TOPIC 12-T-180 1968 - TOPIC 12-T-181 1968 rec by Bill Leader at Festival Concert at Blairgowrie Aug 1967 - TOPIC 12-T-293 1978 solo album rec by Hamish Henderson, Dundee 1954 - TSCD-655 1998 "Rural" "Tarves Rant" & "I am a miller to my trade" (Buchan Miller) / TSCD-658 "Events & Issues" "McPherson's Rant" & "Boolavogue"/ (with ch): TSCD-663 1998 "Drink" "Merchants Son" (Beggar Wench) & "I'm often drunk & seldom sober" - SAYDISC CD SDL-407 1994 "Songs of the Travelling People" - ROUNDER 82161-1633-2 2002 "Go on, sing another song" (Solo Portrait Album)
