Welcome! This is a website that everyone can build together. It's easy!

HomeThis is a featured page

This is my folk song page. I have been singing folk songs for over fifty years, and I am using this site to share my songs and information about them. You are welcome to add information and links to your songs.

Raymond's YouTube Channel:

My goal was to upload 1001 songs to YouTube in 1001 days. I didn't manage to do one a day, but I did reach 1001 songs. Since then I have continued to upload songs but less frequently. One of my goals now is to sing at least one version of each of the English and Scottish ballads collected by Francis James Child.

This website is largely an attempt to organise my songs in some kind of logical way, according to their origins or subject matter.

My latest CD "Who Needs Reality?"
is now available on CD Baby!

This video (on the right) is an interview introducing the album. I thought the interviewer was a bit arrogant though!

Raymond's CDs: This is where you can find information about my five CDs, with links to some of the tracks, YouTube performances of the songs and lyrics. Apart from "Who Needs Reality" my CDs are not currently available for purchase through paypal, but if you are interested, you can contact me and we'll find a way. There will be no more CDs produced as I don't sell enough to cover the cost of producing them.

Other Non-folk websites:

Raymond's Travel Page: My other main interest is in travelling. This site has many stories and journals about my travels over the years, though it has not been updated for some time.

Raymond's Stories: I used to write short stories and poems, until I realised I wasn't very good at it. As I don't like to throw things away, I have collected my stories on this site. Actually there are some quite good ones, if you look carefully enough.
