Marina Russell article from the latest edition of Living Tradition by : Nick Dow
Hi All,
Please excuse the blanket E.mail and some information you may already know. The latest edition of Living Tradition has my article on Marina Russell of Upwey  Dorset, who sang ‘The Bed Making, and ‘Ye Mariners All’ plus another 100 songs to the Hammond brothers in 1907/8. It also has the newly discovered photo of her and her husband Charles. I have enclosed a PDF of the piece, and sending it to all who may be interested. I hope that some festivals will be interested in a workshop on the Hammons brothers singers. I’ll try my luck for next year, meanwhile  I’ll look forward to seeing you all somewhere soon.
Below is a link to the article.
