The Singing Landscape

In 2004, Yvette in collaboration with Dr. C.J. Bearman and supported by Sue Isherwood of Somerset County Council, published 20,000 copies of the Somerset Folk Map. This was the inspiration for another major research project.
The Singing Landscape Project evolved and in 2008 was successful in securing a £204,000 Knowledge Transfer Fellowship (KTF) from the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

The outcome was the publication of the Hampshire Folk Map (2010) and the Gloucestershire Folk Map (2010) and a Singing Landscape Touring Exhibition of Cecil Sharp's photographs of folk singers in Somerset.

The Singing Landscape Project aims to re-connect families with their singing ancestors and the maps and exhibition have excited many to do so. Perhaps you have a singing ancestor?
