The Golden Thread Project launches here!

After two years of working on the first phase of The Golden Thread Project we officially launched an exhibition celebrating the English/American folk songs collected by Cecil Sharp and Maude Karpeles one hundred years ago. It was a huge success! people travelled from far and wide to see the hard work of 28 artists and illustrators who paid homage to fantastic songs of love and violence and enjoyed a night of art, wine and music.

With records played by Mike Gavin of Harmonia Mundi, and Murri Maestro Stephen ‘Nervous’ G Fowler , and performances from King Toad aka Artist Peter Lloyd, Jonny Hannah and the Sharps folk club, it was merry event to kick off this endeavour with.
