I maintained pages for English folk music—principally for The Watersons and Martin Carthy—from 28 February 1998 to 19 November 2002, when I handed them over to Reinhard Zierke.

For a number of years I curated pages for the Copper family. They now have their own site, at thecopperfamily.com.

Standing behind: Royston Wood (1935-1990, car accident), John Copper, Peter Bellamy (1944-1991, suicide) Sitting in front: Ron Copper, Heather Wood (1945-), Bob Copper. Royston Wood and Heather Wood (no relation) and Peter Bellamy were the Young Tradition. Ron (1913-1979), Bob (1915-2004) and Bob's son John were members of the Copper family. The photo might have been taken in the Royal Oak, Lewes: just guessing, and maybe around 1969. Heather Wood wrote to me about it, but I can't find the note. This is here because I put up the original Copper family website.
