Time and Tide present selections from "Who's Afeard?"
Time and Tide are all seasoned, well-respected folk performers, each with a natural interest in and affinity with the music and history of our county. They have drawn their material from our county's records, collective memory and folk memory, and used songs and tunes from the Hammond Collection and the Hardy manuscripts to complement the anecdotes of these hitherto unsung, colourful, local heroes. See them perfom on Saturday 4th June between 2.00pm and 4.00pm at the Old Town Hall, near the Boot Inn.
