Remembering Walter Pardon

We remember another legendary traditional singer from Norfolk, Walter Pardon, 25 years after his death (9th June 1996)

Once again, our thanks are extended to a number of contributors including Damien Barber, Jim Carroll, Pat Mackenzie, Chris Holderness, Alan Helsdon, Sheila Park and Rita Gallard.
