/// YOUR TAKES ///

Listen to the playlist here.

We’ve got 15 brilliant versions of Lyke Wake Dirge to share, huge thanks to all our contributors: Crack Lassi; My First Dog; Kev Pritchard; Vanishing Faces; Liz Hassack; Joshua Kirch; Richard Toller; Matt Milton; Mr Cat Hair; asymptotes; Cerys Hafana; Burd Ellen; and Julian Hayman.


Even though the series is over, we’ll be keeping the conversation going on our Facebook group. It’s a place for our Old Tunes Fresh Takes community to share ideas, submit tracks for feedback and just generally geek out about trad tunes and music production. 

Whether you’re thinking of submitting a take in the future or just want to go deeper into the world of modern folk music then join us. We’re also really keen to get your ideas about how to take the project even further so if you’ve got any ideas for things you’d like to see, drop us an email or a message on social media.
