Solstice Shorts Festival Video Monday Songs from Ian Kennedy & Sarah Lloyd

Three songs from Ian Kennedy & Sarah Lloyd, Dust to Dust a gravedigger’s song by John Kirkpatrick to go with yesterday’s funeral-based tale from Alison Moore

and two MONDAY songs, since it is Monday.

Dashing Away With A Smoothing Iron (an attempt to make palatable the drudgery of laundry before the invention of the washing machine – I remember this from my extreme youth – possibly from the BBC schools programme from which I learnt many, many folk songs)

and a rather anti-woman or at any rate anti-marriage song, On Monday Morning

As previously mentioned, our BSL interpreters weren’t expecting to be filmed and although they rose to the challenge, they want to be clear they would have been even better if they’d had an opportunity to rehearse with the musicians.
