I’ll be back next week to tell you how it went.
Wish us luck!
I came across an interesting article in a course book last week while I was working with a young student of English.
The story was about three young men, two brothers and their friend, who decided to go for an extended walk around Britain with very little in the way of possessions, and a simple plan to sing for their supper.
The book is several years old, so I said to my student: « Let’s see if they’re still doing it » , and thanks to the wizardry of the internet, we managed to track them down in just a few clicks.
The lads started off in 2006 and they have been all round Britain, looking like latter day Merry Men, living off the land where they could and collecting folk songs on the way.
Their journey has taken various twists and turns, particularly when they became minor celebrities for a brief moment, and they recorded it all on a blog:
You can also hear their very melodic voices and listen to some wonderful old tunes, and see the joy in their faces when they sing.
They also have a facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Awalkaroundbritain
So, for those of you who are interested in traditional folk music, check these sites out, and let me know what you think!
