Somerset - Yeovil & Crewkerne

Sharp and Rev Marson collected folksongs from 35 singers in the Hambridge  area (including Ilminster) plus 37 singers in the Langport area (including Somerton). A further 25 singers were found in the Yeovil-Crewkerne area, bringing the total number of singers in what is now called ‘South Somerset’ to 97. This represents 28% of all the Somerset singers.
