Welcome to a series of true stories never told before  Рabout people you may never even have heard of Рbut whose life stories reverberate across the decades and centuries.

Many of these stories start with the life of someone who played a musical instrument or sang an old folk song, and many of them lived in my home area of East Anglia, but there are other stories here as well, which I’m looking forward to sharing with you.

Come back soon to read about singing marshmen and photographers on the Norfolk Broads, a 19th century dance band in Suffolk, Italian street musicians in Norwich, a dulcimer player in a travelling circus and much more ¬†…

I also have some related articles on my other (musical) website: katiehowson.co.uk

This is the start of a series of true stories never told before  – about people you may never even have heard of – but whose life stories reverberate across the decades and centuries.
