Caught by the River

A Playlist for Apple Day

6th October 2016


Apple Day, which falls on 21 October, was launched by Common Ground in 1990. In their words:

‘The aspiration was to create a calendar custom, an autumn holiday. From the start, Apple Day was intended to be both a celebration and a demonstration of the variety we are in danger of losing, not simply in apples, but in the richness and diversity of landscape, ecology and culture too. It has also played a part in raising awareness in the provenance and traceability of food.’

This year, we’ve decided to mark Apple Day with a playlist, and we’d like you to get involved. All you need to do is send us the name of (or a link to) your choice of apple-related song. We’ll collect them all, choose our favourites and consolidate them into a Spotify playlist, which’ll go live just before the big day.

Selections should be sent to, with ‘Apple Day’ in the subject line, no later than next Saturday (15 October). One tune only and no files please.

Thank you in advance!
