Digitised Sound Recordings: Charles Parker Archive 'A Future For Ordinary Folk'  MS 4000/5  1947-1978

Approx. 23 metres; 1188 tapes

Reel to reel tapes; tape boxes; CD-ROMs (Compact Discs-Read Only Memory); papers

Conditions of access: The reel to reel tapes containing the original sound recordings are, for reasons of preservation, not available for consultation. All recordings have been transferred onto CD-ROM. Tape speed and size have been recorded in the catalogue.
All of the 'playback' CD-ROMs are available to be listened to on a dedicated CD player and headphones need to be used to avoid disturbance to other users of the City Archives.
Some recordings are closed to the public. There is a separate list of these.

Conditions of copying: The CD-ROMs may not be reproduced without written evidence of the clearance of copyright and performance rights.
The tape boxes may not be photocopied because this would cause damage to them. Documents may be photocopied at the discretion of the archivist on duty.
Copyright in these recordings is complicated: there is copyright in the words, the music, the sounds, the recordings themselves and there are performers' and performing rights to be considered. It is recommended that advice is taken on all of these issues before any material is made use of.

Archival history:
Following Parker's death in December 1980, his widow established a charitable trust, the Charles Parker Archive Trust, to administer the archive. The material falls into two parts; papers and recordings resulting from his work for the BBC, which are recognised as being the property of the BBC, but which the Corporation have allowed to remain as part of the archive; and the papers and recordings relating to Parker's other activities during that period and from the years after he left the BBC to his death. The Trust deposited the whole archive with Birmingham City Archives in 1985 (accession number 1985/21), and since then has worked in partnership with the City Council and the National Sound Archive in London to catalogue, conserve and promote the collection.
Draft lists of tapes, files, and miscellaneous papers were assembled before the archive came to Birmingham City Archives. This enabled some sorting to be done on arrival at the Archives and the library was stamped and numbered. The major activity undertaken since then towards cataloguing has been the listing of the manuscript material included in the archive, to enable the preparation of a computer-based travelling exhibition, 'Man with a Microphone', produced in 1994 to publicise the archive. This work was partly funded by the Foundation for Sport and the Arts. A more detailed description can be found in the annual reports of the Charles Parker Archive Trust.

Copies information: Another preservation copy of the recordings has been made and will be transferred to the National Sound Archive at the British Library. A copy of the printed catalogue will also be also available there.


Arrangement: The contents of the 'A Future for Ordinary Folk' project form a section of the part of the archive which comprises the reel to reel tapes. A section, and not the complete tape archive, was digitised because the material was selected to fit three criteria: the material had to be non-BBC copyright; the amount of material had to fit within the requirements of project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund; and the material had to form a related and coherent part of the whole Charles Parker Archive. The area that fitted these criteria was that of folk music.
The overall arrangement of the Charles Parker Archive was decided upon when the papers were catalogued in 1994-1996. The collection was at that time known as 'The Charles Parker Archive' [CPA]. The paperwork was sorted into three sections:
CPA /1 personal papers and papers relating to Charles Parker's career
CPA /2 papers relating to BBC programmes and non BBC projects
CPA /3 miscellaneous papers on various subjects
The reference CPA /4 was assigned to Charles Parker's library of over a thousand books
For the current project, the sequence was at first continued by allocating the reference CPA /5 to the digitised recordings. However, this was changed to MS 4000/5 when the catalogue for the project was completed.
The reel to reel tapes holding sound recordings had previously been arranged in chronological order of programme or project, but not given a reference number. Those which have been digitised have now been numbered as part of MS 4000/5 [CPA /5].
There were 9 tapes and 4 empty tape boxes in a later accession (number 1992/113), donated by a member of the Folk Centre/Grey Cock to the Charles Parker Archive, and these have been incorporated as part of the 'Critics Group' sequence (MS 4000/5/4/2). A further 41 tapes (of which 7 were blank and one tape box empty) in another later accession (number 1999/114 ) were also donated by a member of the Folk Centre/Grey Cock to the Charles Parker Archive, and these have been incorporated as part of three subdivisions of the Birmingham and Midland Folk Centre material, viz: 'Local Field Recordings' (MS 4000/5/3/5/5), and 'Performances' (MS 4000/5/3/5/6), and 'Miscellaneous' (MS 4000/5/3/5/7).
The chosen portion of the archive has a natural coherence, reflecting the way Parker's diverse activities all related to his belief in the importance of folk music and vernacular speech. The 1,211 hours of recordings have been catalogued as follows:
MS 4000/5/1 Sound recordings of interviews with traditional folk performers and folk music collectors. Related performance material, folk music and folk song both local and international.
MS 4000/5/2 Sound recordings of lectures and teaching materials by Charles Parker and others relating to folk music and the oral tradition.
MS 4000/5/3 Folk Revival performance material.
MS 4000/5/4 Discussion of folk music and performance.
The third section, Folk Revival performance material, is mainly of recordings made by the Birmingham and Midland Folk Centre. The tapes held by the Birmingham and Midland Folk Centre were numbered, listed and indexed during the life of that organisation. The original list may be found in MS 4000/1/8/13. The new catalogue of these tapes can be found at MS 4000/5/3/5. A conspectus of new and previous numbers has been created for reference. There is an alphabetical index of song titles and tape numbers with the records of the Grey Cock Folk Club (MS 1642 addnl. Accession number 1995/4).

Administrative history:
The Charles Parker Archive comprises the sound recordings and working papers amassed by H. Charles Parker D.S.C. M.A. (1919-80) during his lifetime. Charles Parker was born in Bournemouth in 1919, joined the Navy and commanded a submarine during the Second World War and was awarded a DSC; took a degree in history at Queen's College, Cambridge and joined the BBC in 1949. In 1954 he moved to Birmingham as a radio features producer, and was employed full-time by the BBC until 1972. He was passionate about the cultural importance of the oral tradition and folk song and devoted much of his life to activities through which he could demonstrate their significance and continued relevance. Through the BBC he did his most famous work on the development of radio documentary techniques, his 'radio ballad' Singing the Fishing winning the prestigious Prix Italia for the BBC in 1960. There is widespread recognition of the contribution he made to the art of broadcasting in the media today, a fact reflected in the biographical The Ballad of Charles Parker broadcast by the BBC in 1995.
Parker's colossal energy was reflected in the other projects he was involved in, which extended far beyond his official work for the BBC, into lectures for the Workers' Educational Association, the National Association for the Teaching of English, and the Polytechnic of Central London; extra-mural projects such as his collaboration with Arnold Wesker on The Maker and the Tool in 1962, and engagement in the Folk Music Revival of the 1960s and 1970s as a performer. His encounters with working people in his work for the BBC, and his association with leading figures in the Revival such as A.L. Lloyd, Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger, led him to adopt an increasingly political stance on a broad range of social and cultural issues. After leaving the BBC in 1972, he turned his unique talents as a performer and producer to the service of radical theatre, becoming a founder and mainstay of the Banner Theatre of Actuality in Birmingham. He died during rehearsals for a Banner production in 1980.
Charles Parker was a central figure in the debate about 'Culture and Society' which resonated through the 1960s and 1970s. This was a dispute about the relation of 'High Art, Pop Art and Mass Society', begun by F.R.Leavis and Edward Thompson in the 1930s. During the 1950s it had been taken up by the New Left, and was widely debated in artistic and intellectual circles. A key book in the debate was Richard Hoggart's The Uses of Literacy (1957) which contrasted the working class culture of the 1930s with the Americanised pop culture of the 1950s, to the detriment of the latter.
Parker, like Hoggart, was deeply suspicious of modern pop culture and concerned about its effects on working class culture, but unlike Hoggart, he was actively engaged in attempting to resist American capitalism. He developed his views through lecturing on folk music to a series of Workers' Educational Association classes in Birmingham in the 1960s, and came to believe that the vibrancy of vernacular speech was the key to good communication, and that educators had to learn from its example in order to communicate well in the era of electronic information. Secondly, he argued that the development of capitalist industrial society was in danger of destroying the social and historical roots needed to establish personal and collective identity, and that this posed critical problems for the well-being of society. He also remained strongly influenced by Christianity, which many of those who shared his political views found difficult to reconcile with his other tenets. There were undoubtedly contradictions and complexities in Parker's views, but had he developed these lines of thought, and his related critiques of pop culture and the folk revival, as a coherent body of thought, he might have shared some of the limelight which writers like Hoggart, Adorno, Marcuse and McLuhan enjoyed in the 1960s.
Parker was, however, essentially a practitioner rather than a theorist, and believed that it was through local, regionally-based initiatives close to working-class communities that the trail had to be blazed. In the mid 1960s, he pursued an impressive range of activities. He was in regular contact with a group of folk singers and artists in London working under the direction of Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger and known as the Critics Group. The Critics Group was collecting a repertoire of regional songs which they were recording for Argo Records. Parker was the driving force behind the Birmingham and Midland Folk Centre, which undertook a similar hunt for songs from the Midlands. Some of the results were issued on the Topic record, The Wide Midlands (1971). The Folk Centre also presented concerts by luminaries such as Ewan MacColl, Peggy Seeger, the Exiles and Ravi Shankar, and organised semi-formal folk sessions, which developed into an independent club, the Grey Cock Folk Club, after 1967. Parker's classes therefore took place not as a detached intellectual activity but as an active element in a thriving, non-metropolitan sub-culture.
Parker had been involved with theatre from his years at Cambridge, and by the early 1960s he was involved with a theatre group called the Levellers, who performed at St. Peter's Church, Harborne, where he worshipped in Birmingham. Parker's interest in documentary folk theatre attracted a group of people who were both active in the folk revival and committed to anti-racist and anti-fascist political ideas. Through the shows that Parker produced with this group, he worked towards a distinctive form of drama documentary in which tape recorded speech or other actuality, newspaper clippings or historical material, for example, provided the base into which traditional or contemporary folk song was woven.
Much of the technique was already in his head in 1962 when he prepared The Maker and the Tool, a multi-media documentary drama for presentation at six festivals in major cities run by Arnold Wesker in association with the Trades Councils. It came to full fruition, however, after Parker left the BBC. In the autumn of 1973 a new theatre group, the future Banner Theatre Company in embryo, was gathered from the regular performers at the Grey Cock Folk Club. The initial project was to produce a version of Parker's radio ballad, The Big Hewer, known as Collier Laddie. The show combined Parker's established mix of actuality, folk song and slide projection with dance and movement. Collier Laddie was produced at the Birmingham & Midland Institute, and was so successful that the group decided to take it on tour. From this success, the Banner Theatre Company was born, and over the years 1974 - 1980, Parker was involved in a series of shows with the company which gave it a considerable reputation in both the Labour movement and the community arts world.
At his death, Parker left a very substantial archive of sound recordings of speech and music, his working files of correspondence, notebooks, notes, transcripts of lectures, production books, and articles, and a library of over 1,000 volumes on the subjects of oral tradition, song, music and politics.
The recordings included in the ' A Future for Ordinary Folk' project include, in addition to interviews and lecture work from the 1960s and 1970s, those made with three organisations of which he was a member: the Birmingham and Midland Folk Centre, the Grey Cock Folk Club, and the Critics Group.
The Birmingham and Midland Folk Centre, as mentioned above, was started in 1965 with the aims of collecting and carrying out research into Midland folk material from both oral and printed sources; disseminating such material through publication, performance and other means; furthering and developing the knowledge of all aspects of traditional folk music and, to this end, establishing a collection of books, recordings and documents dealing with folk music and other relevant material. At the end of the first year, according to a membership notice [in MS 4000/1/8/13/1] the members had already collected over four hundred items of Midlands song from oral and printed sources and prepared a selection of the material for publication; had acquired tapes of most of the traditional singers of Britain; had promoted a seminar on singing style by Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger; had organised a successful concert in Birmingham by Ravi Shankar; and had performed at the Singers' Club in London and at the midlands arts centre in Birmingham. The Birmingham and Midland Folk Centre had also affiliated to the English Folk Dance and Song Society. The centre produced a long playing record in 1969 called The Wide Midlands and a book Songs of the Midlands.
The Grey Cock Folk Club grew out of the Birmingham and Midland Folk Centre, starting in 1967 as a performance outlet for material being collected. It was named after the ballad discovered and collected by members of the Folk Centre from a Birmingham singer, Mrs Cecilia Costello. Performances at the club were recorded for research and information purposes and were included as part of the tape collection of the Birmingham and Midland Folk Centre.
The Critics Group was a group of singers and musicians who met regularly with Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger from 1964 to 1971 to explore the art and politics of performance and provide criticism for each other. As well as the development of folk singing they took part in theatre projects such as the 'Festival of Fools', giving annual performances based on political satire. They also recorded, in 1966, as a radio ballad, a modern version of 'Romeo and Juliet' for schools. The group were also involved in the 'Folksingers against Vietnam' anti-war movement and in the Women's movement. Again, recordings were made of the sessions for reference and educational reasons. Persons recorded on these Critics' Group tapes were (in alphabetical order): John Andrews; Frankie Armstrong; Rex Benjamin; Bob Blair; Brian Byrne; Jim Carroll; Phil Colclough; Pat Creedy; John Faulkner; Luke Kelly; Donniel Kennedy; Floyd Kennedy; Sandra Kerr; Pat Mackenzie; Jim O'Connor; Roy Palmer; Charles Parker; Brian Pearson; Jimmy Ross; Irwin Silber; Dick Snell; Denis Turner; Jack Warshaw; Terry Yarnell.

Harry Cox (b.1885)  MS 4000/5/1/1  [n.d.]

Administrative history:
Harry Cox was born in 1885 at Barton Turf, north-east Norfolk and is remembered as a renowned traditional singer who sang and performed on the fiddle, mainly in pubs, and had an enormous repertoire. Both his father and his grandfather were reputed singers in the area. He left school aged 13½ years to work on the land and he describes his childhood and hard outdoor working life from the mid 1880s onwards (MS 4000/5/1/1/2-8). These tapes also include Harry Cox singing traditional songs, many of which he learnt from his father who, originally a fisherman, worked as a farm labourer when he was older. Harry Cox demonstrates his fiddle playing during the interviews (MS 4000/5/1/1/5-7,10-11) along with a tap dancing mannequin he made 1911-1912 (MS 4000/5/1/1/9-10). The recordings also include a discussion on attitudes to poaching
(MS 4000/5/1/1/1) and an unnamed traveller is interviewed on social attitudes towards travellers (MS 4000/5/1/1/9).
The final interview in the sequence is of both Harry Cox and Sam Larner singing Sankey hymns. Sam Larner was born in 1878 at Winterton, Norfolk and worked as a herring fisherman through an era when Great Yarmouth was a major fishing centre. The stories and songs of Sam Larner were used, amongst others, in the making of the third radio ballad 'Singing The Fishing', which was originally transmitted on the BBC Home Service in August 1960, and was awarded the 'Prix d'Italia' for radio documentary in October 1960. See CD recording of the third radio ballad 'Singing The Fishing'. Accompanying written production documentation on the radio ballad is at MS 4000/2/78.
The first interview is conducted by Alan Lomax (see MS 4000/5/3/1) and Ewan MacColl. The remainder of the interviews are conducted by Charles Parker (sometimes accompanied by an unnamed other). Charles Parker is particularly interested in encouraging Harry Cox to sing the traditional songs and to talk about his working life. Song collectors were very interested in meeting and recording Harry Cox due to the quality of his performance and enormous repertoire.

Betsy Miller (born c.1886)  MS 4000/5/1/3  [n.d.]

Administrative history:
Betsy Miller (née Hendry) was born c.1886 and came from Auchterarder, Perthshire, Scotland. Both she and her husband,William Miller, an iron moulder, were active socialists. Their son, Jimmie Miller, later known as Ewan MacColl (1915-1989), inherited their political consciousness and had a full and prestigious career of political activity, performance, lecturing, music and song writing, and promotion of traditional music and the folk revival.
Betsy Miller talks about her own childhood and attitudes to her parents and older people for 'actuality' for the sixth radio ballad 'On The Edge' about teenagers in England and Scotland
(MS 4000/ 5/1/3/1). Other recordings of the same date were also probably made with the third radio ballad in mind and extend to discussion of her married life. The upbringing of Ewan MacColl features strongly in MS 4000/ 5/1/3/5-6 and her Scottish accent is demonstrated in
MS 4000/ 5/1/3/7. The recordings cover a number of subjects including attitudes to the young and the elderly, left wing socialism, poverty, the role of women, life during the two World Wars and emigration to Australia. The interviews are all conducted by Charles Parker who worked closely with Ewan MacColl on the radio ballads amongst other projects.
See CD recording of the sixth radio ballad 'On The Edge' originally transmitted on the BBC Home Service in February 1963. Accompanying written production documentation on the radio ballad is at MS 4000/2/92. See also recording of Betsy Miller used in a lecture at

Joe Heaney (1919-1984)  MS 4000/5/1/5  [n.d.]

Administrative history:
Joe Heaney was born in Carna, Connemara in the west of Ireland in 1919, an area renowned as an outpost for Gaelic culture since the time of Oliver Cromwell. He was one of the finest most famous singers in the Irish 'sean-nós' (old style Gaelic singing) which is characterised by unaccompanied solo singing in a highly 'decorative' style.
Joe Heaney left Ireland in order to find employment and made an impact in the early days of the developing English folk scene. He moved to America in the 1960s and in his last years became artist in residence and teacher of Irish traditional singing at the University of Washington in Seattle and he still visited Carna each year.
The series of interviews recorded here were all conducted in 1963 by Ewan MacColl (1915-1989) and Peggy Seeger (born 1935) renowned folk revivalists, singers and musicians in their own right. The interviews explore both Joe Heaney's background and the history of Ireland as well as many examples of his singing and discussion of singing styles. The series of interviews was released jointly by Topic Records, London and Cló lar-Chonnachta of Indreabhán, Co Galway, Ireland in 2000 as 'The Road From Connemara: Songs and Stories told and sung to Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger' (TSCD 518D) or (CICD143). Information on the CD and transcripts of the interviews can be seen at the Musical Traditions website (The Magazine For Traditional Music throughout the World) at www.mustrad.org.uk/articles. Prior to this release on CD, the only public airing of the recordings seems to have been two short extracts in 'The Song Carriers' a series of fourteen radio programmes on the traditional songs and singers of Great Britain and Ireland which Ewan MacColl wrote and narrated for the BBC Midland Region in conjunction with Charles Parker as radio producer in 1965. See MS 4000/ 2/104 for written documentation on 'The Song Carriers' and MS 4000/ 5/1/11/38 for recording of one of 'The Song Carriers' radio programmes introduced by Ewan MacColl

Charlotte Brooks  MS 4000/5/1/7  [n.d.]

Administrative history:
The recordings of Charlotte Brooks concentrate on her work, experiences of racial segregation as a black woman living in America. The 'dominant language and culture' (of the educated middle classes) is also a dominant theme. When the recordings were made (1968) Charlotte Brooks was living in Washington D.C. She held a full-time position as Head of Department of English for the City of Washington and Consultant for the Office of Education (MS 4000/5/1/7/2). Throughout the tapes she talks about her work broadening attitudes to different dialects and also her 'teaching of acceptance' outside her Washington D.C. schools work (MS 4000/5/1/7/12). The recordings discuss the enslavement of black people in America particularly in relation to Mississippi; the work of Martin Luther King (MS 4000/5/1/7/11); and the Fourteenth Amendment freeing slaves (MS 4000/5/1/7/12). The first tape in the series is predominantly an interview with Dan Fader who describes his literacy and cultural work with under-privileged children aged 12-17 years in America (MS 4000/5/1/7/1).
The interviews are all conducted by Charles Parker who is interested to explore both the attitudes to language and dialect as well as black history, racial segregation and slavery.

George Dunn (1887-1975)  MS 4000/5/1/9  [n.d.]

Administrative history:
George Dunn was born in 1887 in Quarry Bank, Staffordshire, a Black Country village 8 miles west of Birmingham. The Dunn family lived on Sheffield Street, Quarry Bank and George worked in the chain making trade at Noah Bloomers and Son until he was 72 years of age. The business made iron chain of all sizes and George was involved in making the links which were used in the anchor cables of the Titanic (MS 4000/5/1/9/3).
George Dunn was discovered as a traditional folk singer with an enormous repertoire of songs by students from Wolverhampton who were searching the Black Country for oral reminiscences of the chain trade. One of the students, Mrs Rhoma Bowlder, conducts the first two interviews in the sequence (MS 4000/5/1/9/1-2). As she was attending a series of lectures by Charles Parker at the time, she introduced Charles Parker to George Dunn and he conducts the remainder of the interviews. An LP, now deleted, of George Dunn's songs was recorded by Bill Leader and released c1975 on the Leader label (LEE 4042). Since then a double CD of George Dunn has been released by Musical Traditions in 2002 called George Dunn: Chainmaker (MTCD 317-8) which uses recordings made by Roy Palmer, Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger and these recordings here by Charles Parker. See the Musical Traditions website at www.mustrad.org.uk/articles for more information on the release.
The recordings provide much detail on the chainmaking trade (MS 4000/5/1/9/3,5,13,17) and attempts to improve the hard working conditions (MS 4000/5/1/9/13,17). In addition to details of his working life, the recordings are full of George and his younger brother Ernie singing traditional songs many of which they had learned from their father. Mrs Valerie Chapman, George Dunn's daughter also features in some of the recordings. Other topics included in the tapes are poaching (MS 4000/5/1/9/1,3,8), women (MS 4000/5/1/9/5), literacy (MS 4000/5/1/9/6) and politics and war (MS 4000/5/1/9/10,14,15). See also recording at MS 4000/5/2/8/12 [of George and Ernie Dunn] within MS 4000/5/2/8 (Lectures and student work: miscellaneous) and MS 4000/5/3/5/5/20-23 (Birmingham and Midland Folk Centre: Local Field Recordings).

Captain Alfred Ernest Horton (1883-1974)  MS 4000/5/1/10  [n.d.]

Administrative history:
Captain Alfred Ernest Horton of Poole, Dorset (1883-1974) had a long and varied career at sea. He came from a farming background in Kent and describes his childhood in the 1880s and 1890s (MS 4000/5/1/10/5-6). He left school aged 12 years and started his career at sea aged 14 years on barges before moving onto larger coasting vessels and brigantines. By 1901 he was working on coasting vessels and brigantines in the winter and schooner yachts in the summer (MS 4000/5/1/10/7-15). Horton talks in detail about his experiences on long distant trips abroad, including around Cape Horn, on large sailing ships in contrast to being in local waters on coasting vessels in the 'Sailing Ships' interviews (MS 4000/5/1/10/1-4). He also describes the wreck of the SS Antinous on the coast of Portugal, Jan 1922 during this sequence of tapes (MS 4000/5/1/10/3). Horton had an ambitious sailing career and the interviews document his decision to replace voyages on sailing ships with steamers c1907 on which he continued to travel all over the world (MS 4000/5/1/10/9). Horton also refers to the nautical examinations he took during his career (MS 4000/5/1/10/3,7,9). The last set of recordings (MS 4000/5/10/1/16-19) largely comprise Horton singing sea shanties, often with Charles Parker joining in or prompting him. The recordings also include a live theatre production of Joseph and His Technicolour Dreamcoat (MS 4000/5/1/10/16) and a choir singing various songs live at Sidmouth Folk Festival (MS 4000/5/1/10/17)
The first four interviews are conducted by Philip Donnellan, the BBC Documentary Producer for material for his film 'Sailing Ships' in 1971. See MS 4000/3/13 for written documentation on the television documentary film 'Sailing Ships' and MS 4000/1/7/9 for notes to Charles Parker by Philip Donnellan about his interviews with Horton where Donnellan clarifies that Horton always identified himself as a working class coaster rather than as a 'Cape Horner'
The remainder of the interviews are conducted by Charles Parker and the recordings appear to have been intended for broadcast by Charles Parker with the BBC (see MS 4000/1/7/9 for correspondence and songs connected with the interviews of Captain Horton by Charles Parker and notebooks kept by Captain Horton of his voyages). Charles Parker is particularly interested in the sea shanties that Horton sang, Horton's own poetry and writings, his way of life on the sea and naval colloquialisms.
Captain Horton also contributed to a television documentary film 'Before The Mast' produced by Philip Donnellan, which was first broadcast on BBC2 in December 1971. Horton did not himself appear in the film but he lent relevant items and photographs, provided contact for the producers with the 'Cape Horners of Bournemouth' (other sailors who remember voyages on sailing ships at turn of the 19/20th century) and provided detail for the Cape Horner sequences in the film. Material on 'Before The Mast' and references to the contribution of Captain Horton can be seen in the Philip Donnellan collection deposited in Birmingham City Archives (MS 1938).

Administrative history:
This series of tapes provides a varied introduction to the work of both Ewan MacColl (1915-1989) and his wife, Peggy Seeger, (born 1935) who both participated fully in left wing political activity, performance, lecturing, music and song writing and the promotion of traditional music and the folk revival. Many of the English and Scottish songs featured here were released on record labels and this has been noted in the descriptions. The second and third tapes record Ewan MacColl singing from Percy's Reliques of Ancient English Poetry, first published in 1765 and from Hyder Edward Rollins edition of The Pepys Ballads, which is the largest surviving collection of English ballads printed in London in the seventeenth century and a great source for English popular culture.
Other recordings include radio programmes of ' The British Oral Tradition ' (MS 4000/5/1/12/5) and
' On The Wings Of Song ' (MS 4000/5/1/12/9). The last tape ends with Charles Parker interviewing workers with visual impairment in an engineering shop in Berkshire (MS 4000/5/1/12/11). See also MS 4000/2/124A for tape transcripts, research notes, production papers etc on two BBC documentary films by Philip Donnellan and Charles Parker about the provision of education and care for blind people in the UK, 1967 and MS 4000/2/124B for production papers etc of BBC Radio 4 production ' The Blind Set ', 1968.

The collection contains over three hundred ballads and related research. The ballads are often referred to in academic works by their sequential number, for example Lord Randall is Child #12 and Sir Patrick Spens is Child #58.
The Child Ballads have been released in both the UK by Topic Records and in the USA by Folkways and Riverside records. The sound recordings featured here are from both the Topic, Folkways and Riverside record labels.

Administrative history:
Throughout the 1960s Charles Parker became increasingly radical in his position on social issues and this was reflected in his support of the travelling communities. Travellers were severely mistreated during this period and subject to fierce criticism and opposition from permanent residents in the West Midlands. The making of the eighth and final radio ballad on the way of life of travellers in England and Wales, 'The Travelling People', first broadcast in April 1964, heightened his awareness of the difficulties faced by the travelling communities. See CD recording of the eighth radio ballad. Accompanying written production documentation on the radio ballad is at MS 4000/2/97. A difficult episode in Birmingham which resulted in the eviction of some travellers in 1969 motivated Charles Parker and others to formally address the problem and the West Midlands Gypsy Liaison Group (WMGLG) was formed as a result. Papers, minutes and news cuttings on the travellers issue and formation of the Group can be seen at MS 4000/1/8/19.

Administrative history:
Charles Parker intended to produce a number of radio features on Greece, but both his proposed series of three programmes on popular song in Greece, in 1964, and 'The Kapetanios', in 1979, based on the book 'The Kapetanios; Partisans and Civil War in Greece 1943-1949' by Dominic Eudes, were turned down (MS 4000/3/13). This set of sound recordings of popular music and festivals in Central and Western Greece, made in August 1966, were probably also intended for a radio production.
The recordings in Central Greece were made at Mikró and Plataniá on the south coast of Pílio, near Láfkos on the Mount Pílio Peninsula and feature the Mikró Beach Side Festival. The recordings in Western Greece were made at the village of Samarina in the Píndhos Mountains. This village is reputed to be the highest village in Greece, and is principally inhabited during the summer by Vlachs from the plains of Thessaly and their sheep. The recordings capture the high point of the year in Samarina with the annual festival in August to celebrate the Feast of the Assumption (MS 4000/5/1/19/10).
Throughout the 1960s Charles Parker became increasingly radical in his position on social issues. He was influenced by his association and work with the classicist and communist Professor George Thomson and his wife Katharine Thomson. George Thomson was Professor of Greek at Birmingham University, 1937-1970, and in his free time led Marxist Study Groups promoting the culture of working people (MS 4000/1/8/12). Charles Parker's relationship with George Thomson undoubtedly led to an interest in Greece and opposition to the human rights breaches there and support for the restoration of democracy in 1967. This can be seen in the material collected on the military coup in Greece on 21 April 1967, and activities of the Birmingham Committee for Democracy in Greece, at MS 4000/3/12.
