The Country Diary in Song

St Margarets Road,, Olton, Solihull, West Midlands, B92 7JS


The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady author Edith Holden's 150th Birthday weekend is celebrated in a new folk musical.

Broomdasher sing classic songs like Wild Mountain Thyme, Bushes and Briars and Seeds of Love - and you're encouraged to join in too.

Edith lived in Solihull and her 1906 Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady was a worldwide phenomenon when published in 1977, selling seven million copies.

In an evening of nostalgia, the musical brings Edith's diary descriptions and paintings to life through folk songs and restyles her as an Edwardian Eco-Warrior, recalling an era which was slipping away, as growing industrialisation changed the landscape, culture and society in Britain
Broomdasher are a five-voice acapella group who have earned a first rate reputation for the quality of their arrangements, harmonies and singing.
All of their recordings are part of the British Library's National Sound Archive as "an outstanding example of grass toots folk today".
