Doin Different Support and Resource pages
Doin Different: New Ballads from the East of England is a collection of 39 ballads on East Anglian themes. The ballads are written by Gareth Calway but he's had a wealth of help from friends in the spoken verse and folk music field - and here's a starter, with just a few of the links you can follow. We'll be adding more as soon as we can - but the starting point is the book, which you can buy from your local bookshop or order on-line by clicking on its title in the left hand column.
You'll find further pages of resources by using the menu on the left of this page.
Here's some general links to start us off:
