This was actually recorded in the 1950's. There are more recent recordings with younger members of the family, and older ones. The family have continued, probably uniquely, the tradition of unaccompanied singing, usually on rural themes, as this certainly is. They had shepherd members of the family so some songs involve that craft. The tradition goes back, in this family, at least 8 generations, in the village of Rottingdean, Near Brighton, in Sussex.

NB: The Waterson family, from Yorkshire, also continue in the unaccompanied family singing style.
