We read your article about Pat Shaw in the latest ED&S with great interest as we have a great admiration for him as well.
The reason for writing to you is to bring to your attention the ‘Pat Shaw Collection’ of dances and tunes compiled and edited by Marjorie Fennessy (of which I am sure you are aware) and the fact that they were published by the late Harry Styles, and we think that he should get a mention within your Legacy Group.
Harry was not merely a background publisher but a folk musician and dancer as well (and also an instrument maker). At the time of the Pat Shaw publication he ran a folk dance band called Barley Mow (which included his son Tony and ourselves) and I am sure that his expertise added greatly to the production of the ‘Collection’.
All best wishes,
Mike & Crys Rothon
