Description: Dialect poet William Barnes relished the country dances, folksongs and carols of Dorset, and often wrote about community celebrations, where music was a key part of the proceedings. Alongside a delicious Dorset tea, The Ridgeway Singers and Band, led by Tim Laycock and Phil Humphries, will perform traditional songs collected across the County by the Hammond brothers, play dance tunes from the repertoire of fiddler Benjamin rose and will perform an arrangement of the R. Vaughan- Williams setting of William Barnes' famous poem 'My Orchard in Linden Lea'. Recitals of some of Barnes' much-loved poems will keep alive the rich dialect of Dorset.
