BBC South Today - Secret Shore Interview
I have blogged about this before, but it's certainly worth doing so again.
Chris Hare's 'Secret Shore' project is taking off and beginning to attract significant publicity. It aims to revive the traditional songs, folklore and history of the coastal region of the South Downs.
The project has received a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and is now recruiting volunteers over a two year period to learn the folk songs once popular in the harbour and coastal towns of the region. There will also be workshops in which participants can learn about, and research, the folklore and superstitions that once played such an important role in the lives of everyday people.
Half-day workshops on local History and Folklore will be held in Worthing in the spring, followed later in the year with Songs Workshops in Littlehampton and Shoreham.
