Browse Cecil Sharp's diaries
The digitisation project is sponsored by The Shanty Crew, Britain's first dedicated sea shanty group, remembering all those who sang with it for thirty years from 1976 onwards.
The Country Dance and Song Society is the sponsor of the transcription project, making the American diaries of our founder, Cecil Sharp, widely available to scholars, dancers, and all those interested in traditional American dance and music.
This project is dedicated to the memory and contributions of John M. ("Jack") Langstaff.
It has been underwritten by: The Ithaka Foundation, The Langstaff family and William L. Ritchie.
