Copper family. For a number of years, from 28 February 1998, I curated pages for the Copper family. I gave the family my content at the end of 2002, and it was sensitively transformed by Molly Romanov (then Molly Mockford) who was with Pagination Associates at that time.
The family site is at thecopperfamily.com, but now looks rather different (and doesn't mention me :/)
I put my own legacy 20th century content back up here at Xmas 2017.
Reinhard Zierke, at mainlynorfolk.info, now has a complete list of Copper tracks and songs.
The Copper Family with The Young Tradition
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 first Copper family website.
There is now an official Danny Spooner site run by his widow, on which recordings are available for sale.
The informational content is also available at mainlynorfolk.info.
Watersons and Martin Carthy
I maintained pages for English folk music—for The Watersons and Martin Carthy, and more—from 28 February 1998 to 19 November 2002, when I handed them over to Reinhard Zierke, and they're now at mainlynorfolk.info.
See also: Joan Baez, and 'Folkwest' 1986-2004—and - on another site of mine - music, including: The Sensitive New Age Cowpersons, The Jam Tarts, Hammer and Tongues, Fling, Gary Burke, and more.
