SOME OF THE ITEMS ARE ACCESSIBLE HERE

Having spent some time on this amazing site, I believe there might be more - try the 'Interviews' section
At a quick glance, most are included on the posthumously issued 'Bramble Briars and Beams of the Sun' Fellside album

It really is about time the Kennedy collection was sorted out once and for all
I have a friend whose family made major contributions to the BBC collection, yet some of the items family member are believed to have sung have gone missing, though family records indicate they were recorded

In my opinion, the BBC project represents the most important record of the oral traditions of these islands, yet much of it had lain neglected and largely inaccessible since the recordings were made
