- ‘Paul & Liz Davenport’

Welcome to the Hallamshire Traditions website.

We are a ‘not-for-profit’ organisation involved in traditional music and song.

If you explore this site you will get some idea of what we are all about but briefly;

We provide support for performers of traditional music.

We carry out research and publish resources for musicians and dancers.

We promote traditional music and dance through our own performances.

We carry out design and development work for other performers/organisations.

We act as a consultancy and are involved in artist development.

Paul’s own songs skillfully blend the old styles with modern concerns and I defy you to listen to ‘The Price of Cod’ and instantly say whether it is old or new.

Dai Jeffries – ‘Rock ‘n’ Reel’ Vol. 2, No. 45

I enjoyed this immensely, and if you enjoy good songs well sung, you will too.

Baz Parkes ‘ED&S’ – Spring 2014

There are a lot of good songs on this CD and they deserve to be more widely sung. In fact, after listening to them a couple of times, you’ll be joining in.
