News Clipping: Bill Bartlett, The Symondsbury Mummer

The Symondsbury Mummers
Bill, a great Dorsetman, passed away in late July 2011. www.transitionvision.tv was privileged to shoot an interview with him at Eype on the Dorset coast about his involvement with the Symondsbury Mummers - how the tradition was revived in 1950 and particularly about the film of the Mummers made by the late Peter Kennedy in 1952. Bill was simply brilliant company and to meet him was to feel that you had known him for years: a very special person to many, many people. "Singing the Travels" - the song associated with the Symondsbury Mummers - is played on melodeon by the late Peter Kennedy. This material is drawn from the Trilith Production, "Walk in Room".
