Dear Mr Red Just wanted to say..... "CELEBRATING CYRIL" will be held on Saturday 14th April 2007 at Cecil Sharp House, 2 Regent's Park Road, London NW1 7AY - to remember the life and work of Cyril Tawney, who died in April 2005, and to raise funds for the preservation of his archive of writing, field recordings and folk memorabilia, which will be housed in the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library in Cecil Sharp House, which is the headquarters of the English Folk Dance and Song Society. Among the many friends and colleagues taking part will be Martin Carthy and Norma Waterson, Louis Killen, Mike Waterson, Shep Woolley, Roy Harris, Doc Rowe, Martyn Wyndham-Read and Iris Bishop, Roy Clinging, Les Barker, Tim Laycock, Heather Wood, and a contingent from the West of England, including the Dartmoor Pixie Band with their caller Sarah Bazeley, Jim Causley, Ed Rennie, Tim van Eyken, Hanging Johnny, The Claque and Graham O'Callaghan. In the afternoon, a Westcountry Revel with entertainment by the Westcountry performers including dancing to the Dartmoor Pixie Band, will highlight Cyril's strong regional connections. Following this, Shep Woolley and friends will present "Hands to Dance and Skylark", Shep's programme about Cyril's seminal work on the traditional songs of the modern Royal Navy. The bill for the evening concert will include many of England's leading performers of traditional songs and music. Throughout the day Doc Rowe's audiovisual exhibition, which documents aspects of Cyril and his work, will be on display and there will be ample opportunity to socialise at singarounds and in the bar.
