Annotated discography of Peter Kennedy’s recordings now available

Peter Kennedy was an English folk song collector who died in 2006. After his death, the files associated with his recordings were passed on to the British Library for future researchers to explore and use. For many years, Reg Hall has been working with the files, and as a result, a 352 page document entitled Peter Kennedy’s Published Recordings Of British And Irish Traditional Music And Related Material: An Annotated Discography, has now been published and is available to read from the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library website.

Talking of the publication of this immense piece of work, the Traditional Song Forum said: “This is a very interesting and important publication that reveals much about the work of Peter Kennedy and some of his colleagues in the early days of collecting using sound recording.”
