>I have been communicating with Warren Fahey about Peter Bellamy's visit to Oz. Over the years Warren sponsored a number of Brit. and Irish folk artistes down under to appear in his Folk Song series at the Sydney Opera House. Tapes of these as made by the ABC have survived such as of Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger, and also Joe Heaney. But Warren said that the Peter Bellamy tapes simply disappeared. I'm sure that he would be interested in any recordings made by PB whilst he was down under.


I have very good quality tapes of the Bellamy programs made with Mulhullan from off-air ABC-FM, as I have mentioned above.

These include:

* Four one-hour programs on Kipling - Bellamy interviewed by Mulhullan    and illustrated with cuts from the Argo records

* An interview with PB

* Concert from Sydney Opera House with PB and Shirley Collins, separately and together.

PM for details.

(Bellamy toured Australia twice, to my knowledge - the above tour with Shirley Collins, and once solo. No known recordings of the solo tour have surfaced.)]

I'd dearly love to get hold of copies of the above - I knew Peter in the UK in the 70s, and saw him for the last time in Ontario, where he sold me a copy of the 'Fair Annie' cassette. I was out of Australia at the time of the Oz recordings. Please?
