About Vic & Tina

Vic and Tina do not think of themselves as song collectors; rather they regard themselves as enthusiasts. However, over their lifelong shared interest in traditional music and song, they have gathered together recordings made from three sources:

  • Recordings made in the folk clubs that they have been running since the 1960s
  • Recordings made in their meetings with singers and performers, usually interviews that were to be the basis of magazine articles that they were preparing.
  • Recordings made in the BBC studios in Brighton for the weekly local radio programme "Minstrels Gallery" in which Vic shared a role of presenter and producer for 25 years.
