Lucy Wright British Folk music magazines request (27) Folk music magazines request 20 Oct 09

Hello Mudcatters,

First off, i'll apologise if this isn't the right place to post this sort of request... I've just joined and i did have a quick search through the FAQs but couldn't find anything that prohibited it - anyway, if i missed something and this isn't appropriate please just say and i'll remove it immediately!

I'm a PhD student working on a project to do with the British folk scene and am looking for old copies of folk music magazines (any age, any regional specialism! Living Tradition, the EFDSS mag, FRoots, Irish Folk magazines...anything i haven't heard of too...) If anyone happens to have any hanging around at home that they want rid of - i realise that lots of people collect these (i've been looking for back issues on Ebay and so far haven't seen anything) - but just on the offchance that someone did have some they were just waiting to throw out with the recycling, i'd really appreciate it if they thought of me... i'm a student of modest means but i'd be willing to pay a little and at least cover the postage costs if anyone was able to help me out :-)

Or alternatively, if anyone knows where i might look for old (preferably cheap, not collectors) copies of folk mags please let me know!

Thank you,
