Fenlandia by Mary Humphreys & Anahata

Summary

Since coming to live in East Anglia I have been looking for songs collected in the area where I now live. The newly issued Classic English Folk Songs revised by Malcolm Douglas, published by EFDSS in association with South Riding Folk Network in 2003 had much expanded notes on the song Lucy Wan which I have known for many years and the book included some biographical details of the source singer, Mrs Charlotte Dann ( nee Few) of Cottenham.
