During the 1970s Keith Summers trailed the highways and byways of Suffolk, meeting and recording local singers and musicians who all had one thing in common, their songs and tunes had been handed down to them by their families and communities. When Keith died in 2004 he left a huge legacy of recordings of traditional music-making.

 

The recordings here with twelve singers, three fiddle players and four melodeon and mouthorgan players give us a taste of what he heard, performed by real Good Hearted Fellows.
