GUEST,Henry Folklore: Percy Grainger (71* d) RE: Folklore: Percy Grainger 27 Apr 05


Grainger attended the North Lincolnshire Musical Competition Festival in April 1905, a hundred years ago. His collecting then included two verses of Brigg Fair from Joseph Taylor.

He returned to Brigg in August 1905 and collected more songs.

Grainger began his recording with a borrowed Edison cylinder phonograph which he took to the 1906 festival.

His fiancee, expecting a low key wedding, was surprised when the ceremony took place on the stage of the Hollywood Bowl in front of an audience of 20,000.
