Veteran folk multi-tasker Barry Goodman is a singer, musician, songwriter, dance caller and folk arts educator. He is an energetic and inspirational communicator. With school children he champions the delights of folk dancing, with adults he encourages discussion about the music and to question where it's coming from. English folk is constantly evolving, we allow outside influences, we appreciate the joy of discovery.

In this podcast Barry talks eloquently about his long musical career which ran in parallel with teaching primary school children for many years. He finally became a professional musician on retirement from full time teaching. He will be known to many as the melodeon playing half of folk duo Life & Times along with singer/songwriter Graeme Meek. Since Life & Times ceased operation in 2015 Barry has developed a wide ranging and successful solo career. Details of the breadth of his activities can be found on his Website at http://www.barrygoodmanfolk.co.uk/

Pete Castle is a folk singer and storyteller who first came to the attention of Invisible Folk during research for Bedfordshire folk songs. Pete is a former resident of the county (1976-87) who collected around 70 songs of local origin and deposited them at Luton Wardown Museum. 20 of these songs were released by Pete on cassette in 1981, some of the songs in this podcast come from that collection.

The recording took place during Brickworks Day at The Higgins, Bedford (25th May 2019) an event supporting the 'From Bunyan to Brickworks' exhibition at the museum. Invisible Folk curated a mini folk festival which ran throughout the day in the courtyard with 10 artists/groups. It was a glorious day and the music was great. Pete Castle was the final act, it was the first time he had performed in his former home county for many years.

Song Titles:
1 Bedfordshire May Song
2 The Duke of Bedford
3 Watercresses
4 As I Came Home
5 A Spinning We Will Go
6 My Son John
7 Poor Tom Brown
8 Over The Hill

Invisible Folk are delighted to be able to make this special event available to our podcast listeners. For more information visit Pete's comprehensive Website at https://petecastle.co.uk/
