about the project Loretta Bosence and Liz Haven’s “Sing us an old song!” is an ongoing project which seeks to reinvigorate the communal tradition of passing on shared memories and experience through song.
They have recorded local people singing songs that they feel are likely to disappear and that they wish to pass on to others. The lyrics and music speak directly of past eras, relating social customs and conventions that sound peculiar and arcane to modern listeners.
