Welcome to our website for singers who want to learn and sing traditional and new South Downs folk songs, sung in the traditional way.
"Put another barrel on, landlord, and pull a pint for me! The ale in Sussex is the best we all agree!"

Fiona Hancock of the National Trust thanked us for “Again contributing to a very successful WW1 Remembrance weekend, with your fine selection of songs celebrating Kipling, and reflecting the traumatic effects of the war on the society that endured it.”
Colin B videoed the event and together with Keith D’s recordings, both here and at the Sullington Flower Festival, moved us toward promoting ourselves further to attract more members.
Special thanks to Emily, Amaryllis and Libby for providing the extra songs that were sung in the entrance hall of the house (till we were turfed out) and when ‘under fire’ afterwards, protected by the hedge in the garden when the whistles blew for ‘over the top’.
Mike, understudying David, did us proud with the song announcements which he was seen rehearsing at various points within the gardens between performances.
The event generated our best turnout of Singers so far this year.
Fiona is considering changing the format next year, so I will keep more closely in touch.
