stirrings 143:

number 148: sept-nov 2011

As autumn gently gilds the woods and hedgerows, Stirrings 148 arrives oozing with autumnal richness. We have a rare and exclusive interview with Jim Eldon – we reckon he's the finest exponent of English traditional song still at large. Jim parries our every impertinent question with a measured and illuminating answer, and explains why ear plugs are an essential part of any fiddle player's equipment.
