Helpston 2005

(Reedbeds - Carry Akroyd)

Just arrived home from the 24th Annual John Clare Festival in Helpston... as always a treat. Wish you could have heard Ronnie Blythe's talk on 'Clare and the Gypsies'... no doubt it will surface in one publication or another one day, or indeed on the planned Autumn 2005 CD... it was a joy to be there.

A publication to look out for: "The Wood is Sweet" a selection of Clare poems, selected and introduced by David Powell, and wonderfully illustrated with Carry Akroyd's evocative linocuts. For further information have a look at - The John Clare Society Website - Carrie's wonderfully illustrated Website (a 'must see') Posted by Picasa
