On the evening of Friday 10th November, 75 attendees congregated in the Dolphin Suite at the Dolphin Hotel for our Annual Research Lecture.
The audience, consisting of both members and non-members, enjoyed a presentation by Martin and Shan Graebe who told the story of Baring-Gould’s journeys across Dartmoor in the late 19th Century and who from the age of 17, travelled in search of folk songs.
Martin described the men and women that he met and both Martin and Shan sung beautifully the songs that he found.
The whole evening was rounded off by an appetising buffet supplied by Robert and his catering team enabling everyone to socialise.
It was also an opportunity for people to buy Martin’s new book entitled “As I Walked Out, Sabine Baring-Gould and his search for Folk Song in Devon and Cornwall”.
It was a truly unique and special evening that everyone thoroughly enjoyed.
