In addition to the difficulties and worries due to the war, the boy’s mother and grandmother have to cope with the class system, and the stigma of the boy’s illegitimacy. The people of the village are traumatized and shocked by the tragedy. They are fearful for the safety of their children. Will the guilty criminal strike again? The police are urgently trying to track him down. Can the village return to its erstwhile peace and quiet? The future alone can provide the answer.< Less

Bristol Folk includes detailed histories for all known folk musicians working in Bristol in the 1960 and 1970s who made records during that period. Many of those on the scene provided memories and... More > several, including the late Fred Wedlock, wrote special sections, which are included in addition to their main profiles. These help to put the current folk scene in context, as do the sections on the folk club scene and local folk-friendly record labels, which included Village Thing, now recognised as the UK's first 'alternative folk' label. They even described themselves as such way back in the early 1970s! Please note that this electronic edition of 'Bristol Folk' does not include the images as included in the full price paperback version. It does, however, include new material on Shortwaveband, who were missed out of the original version on the erroneous belief that they were from Bath!
