Lincoln chosen as part of musical heritage project
Lincoln has been selected to stage an event as part of a campaign to reconnect us with our English musical heritage.
Supported by a Lottery Grant, a huge collection of songs, words and music, together with a mass of correspondence has been made available on the internet through the Full English Project.
Most of the songs have never been published. Amongst them are the dozens of songs collected by Percy Grainger, the famous Australian composer and pianist, in North Lincolnshire between 1905 and 1908.
The series of study-days around the country has been arranged to draw attention to the Project and to give people the chance to find out more.
The folk-song study-day is at the Drill Hall on Saturday, September 7, 9.30am to 5pm.
Full details of how to book your place, which costs £10 including tea and coffee, are available on the Drill Hall website at www.lincolndrillhall. com/events
