Keeping Billy Bennington's Memory Alive

Keeping Billy Bennington's Memory Alive

On Sunday last myself and Chris Holderness (one third of Rig a jig jig) had the good fortune to play at Barford heritage open day. Barford  was Billy Bennington's home for most of his life and my current dulcimer was owned by him for a while.

The above picture was taken in the Barford Cock. It was probably not the first time that it had been played there but it was the first time I had played it there.

We picked up a good many stories about Billy on the day and I got a nice picture of his fathers penny whistle:
