Dear Outreach friends,

Perhaps you may like to know of two new websites which I recently built.

The first, at


This could be helpful to anyone interested in singing traditions and British/irish ballad and song repertories. It features over 100 recordings made in the Shetland island of Whalsay during my research there during the period 1969-1985 and is accompanied by text transcriptions, notes on the singers and often the contexts in which the recordings were made. It is also an exercise in "sustainable ethnomusicology" since it has involved the recent cooperation of numerous Whalsay residents who have helpfully provided background information, images, text transcriptions and comments on the songs and the singers – many of whom were their parents or grandparents.
If you get a notice saying"Oops, that page can't be found", just ignore it and click on any Home menu there and you can proceed: (a slight problem for the university host to sort out)

The second is simply my own site at


which contains bio details as well bibliographies of my researches linked to downloads of articles and recordings and text transcriptions for CDs. etc. some of which may be useful to members.

Happy viewing!
Dr Peter Cooke
