BBC Radio 3's Petroc Trelawny has been travelling slowly down Wensleydale over the last few days, enjoying the wonderful weather and countryside and sharing them on his Breakfast programme. If you've not heard him, you can catch up on BBC Sounds for about a month. Well worth listening to (and not just for the music - the birdsong and the sheep come across very well too).
If you have been listening, you may have caught Jake Heringman and Susanna Pell being interviewed on 13 July, and performing on lute and viol in a field of sheep near Jervaulx Abbey. Jake and Zan (resident in Richmond, and previously trustees of this society) spoke glowingly of the rich musical life of the area, and particularly of the Richmondshire Concerts and the Swaledale Festival. Thanks, both, and we hope you got a breakfast out of it!
Here's a link; you'll hear Zan and Jake at the 1 hour 47 minute mark.
