The old ones are the best

FOLK star Eliza Carthy is set to breathe new life into a selection of traditional songs rediscovered by Loughborough researchers at a performance in the town.
As well as playing a set if her own material at the Martin Hall Theatre at Loughborough University at the May 4 Radar Arts event, she will tackle numbers unearthed by Prof Marek Korczynski and his colleagues during the course of their research into the social history of music in the workplace.
A spokesman said: "A unique opportunity to see renowned folk singer and musician, Eliza Carthy, perform a mix of her own songs and a selection of workplace songs.
"Prior to the performance Marek Korczynski will give a short introductory talk, I Hear the British Isles Singing."
