What an adventure these past 6 months have been! But this is most definitely not the end. So many people have shown an interest and I hope to continue gathering stories from people across Poppyland so please get in touch if you have something to share. Also, if you haven't done so already, then check out the Poppyland Songs Podcast

Poppyland Songs; A Rural Idyll


This project was inspired by my Great Great Aunt's journals from 1912-1914. She interviewed people living in the tiny village of Sidestrand where I also grew up. Within these journals are stories, songs, local lore and general life as told to her by these mostly very rural people. A beautiful window into life back then from the mouths of people who would otherwise have have been lost to time. These journals inspired me to compose music and research more about the area I grew up in.

I've started to understand what 'being a musician' really means to me. So deeply embedded, I've always taken it for granted.
