Trinity Laban, The Greenwich Foundation and Dave Arthur join forces for a day of music, talk and friendship in celebration of the life and work of Bert Lloyd, one of the key figures of folk music in Britain. Folk artists Martyn Wyndham-Read, Bernard Wrigley, Rattle on the Stove Pipe, Hylda Sims and the revived City Ramblers Skiffle Group perform tributes to Lloyd, and Joe Townsend’s band recreates music from Lloyd’s journeys in Romania. Filmmaker Barrie Gavin, Bert's daughter Caroline Clayton, architectural historian Peter Guillery, folk music academic Vic Gammon and Greenwich historian Horatio Blood discuss Greenwich and Bert’s life and work in the borough from 1949 to his death in 1982.
Be prepared to listen, sing and join in the conversation at this day celebrating folk traditions.
