Speedwell The Transports 2017! (81* d) RE: The Transports 2017! 21 Jan 17


I too am looking forward to seeing the production in Cambridge next week. I think it's a fitting tribute to Peter's talent that his folk ballad-opera is still out there on tour.I hear from the radio programme that it has been added to and given a present day relevance which seems in keeping with the folk process. As well as being an historical awareness-raiser concerning the plight of 18th century transportees I hope it will also bring younger folk enthusiasts to know the work of a much missed Bellamy.Show business perhaps but show business with a folk music aspect to it and that's not so often seen.I agree with Good Soldier Schweik that a Samaritans collection would be a good idea; for the reasons already outlined.
