Thank you Nicholas, I'm glad you enjoyed it. I've just done two shows on the theme of London - both full of folklore and history too - jointly with Folk London. Nice comment, thank you

Surprisingly enjoyable and inspirational. A treasure of a find.

Very interesting and informative as ever. I'm a bit loathe to pick out favourite tracks but I especially like tracks 5 - 9 -11- 12- 13 -15 - 16 and 18. Tamsin always makes the theme of each show interesting and I do learn a lot each time.
