This conference took place on 10th & 11th November at Cecil Sharp House in London. It was jointly organised by The English Folk Dance & Song Society and The Traditional Song Forum. One of twenty-three presentations was by Sean Goddard and concerned the song collecting in Sussex by Tony Wales; a project which was the Foundation Project for Sussex Traditions. Sean has adapted this presentation for inclusion on this website and you can read it at
