The Axford Five by The Askew Sisters & Craig Morgan Robson

Summary

Songs collected by George Gardiner from the village of Axford, Hampshire in 1904 from Sarah Goodyear, Marty Munday, Elizabeth Randall, Charlotte Hall and Emma Hopkins. Together these women, known affectionately as the Axford Five, provided a rich variety of material, from songs of love and loss, murder and mischief to the downright risqué!
