Paul Davenport comes from Maltby and is an Internationally recognised Traditional Folk singer and Historian.

Paul will be leading a Workshop as part of The Rotherham Open Arts Festival looking at the “Gatty Collection” of Folk Songs that was collected in 1907 by Ralph Vaughan Williams and Gatty from the singers of Stainton, Braithwell, Maltby, Ravenfield etc.

In early 2012 Paul and his Wife Liz will be publishing the songs in a single volume for the first time.

At this Workshop Paul will introduce the collection of Songs and along with Liz will sing a few of the songs.

This evening will be of interest to historians, especially local ones and those interested in the Traditional Song.
