Here are the results of our last couple of newsletter competitions:
First up, we had three copies of Stick in the Wheel’s new compilation From Here: English Folk Field Recordings, on winners’ choice of CD or vinyl, to give away.
We asked: The album includes contributions from a wide array of musicians, including English concertina player Rob Harbron. But in which year was the English concertina invented?
And the answer is: 1829. The winners are Lynn Marchant, Chris Harley, and Chris Coomer. Your prizes will be with you very soon.
Next up, we had three copies of Dominic Couzens’ newly released Songs of Love & War: The Dark Heart of Bird Behaviour to give away, courtesy of Bloomsbury.
We asked: Following a poll of more than 200,000 people, which bird was voted the UK’s national bird in 2015?
And the answer is: the robin. The winners are Alice Bentley, Claire Maw, and Philip Preston. Your prizes are on their way.
Thanks, as usual, for all the competition entries.
