 CONCERTINA.net - English Country Music -- A Personal View
The name 'English Country Music' first appeared as the title of an LP recorded by Bill Leader in Shipdham, Norfolk in August 1962 and released by Reg Hall and Bob Davenport in September 1965.
There was, and still is, great music in other parts of England as well, most notably Bob Cann, all round entertainer and spectacular melodeon player from Dartmoor in Devon, or Willy Atkinson (mouth organ) from Alnwick in the North East and these musicians soon came to a wider audience at Festivals and through LP releases.
It should be clear from all of this that English Country Music is functional dance music and that this explains the firm rhythm and lack of ornamentation which are intended to help the dancers.

Country music has its share of wild characters, but old-fashioned, clean-cut, suit-and-tie-wearing Eddie Stubbs isn't one of them.
For a radio disc jockey faced with media conglomeration, target audiences and shrunken playlists, filling commercial and even public airwaves with classic country -- music from its golden era of the 1940s, '50s and '60s -- is a tall order.
