Join Dr Jula Szuster to hear about the friendship between the musician Cecil Sharp and Charles Marson, parish priest of St Oswald’s Anglican Church, Parkside. The friendship began in Adelaide and continued when both men returned to England. 

The Sharp/Marson collaboration was responsible for the discovery and collection of traditional folksongs in Somerset which inspired the folksong revival movement in England in the first decade of the twentieth century. In conjunction with the lecture will be an exhibition about music history at St Oswald’s.
