Harding, James

Back to performers

Cecil Sharp visited James Harding at Stow on the Wold on 28 March 1907 when he sang The Butcher’s Frolic, The Green Mossy Banks of the Lea, Sally My Dear,’ Twas of a Young Farmer and The Unquiet Grave.

No James Harding appears the 1911 Census in Stow on the Wold. A James Harding who was a stone mason born in Stow on the Wold in about 1788 was living in Farmington in 1851 who may have been a relation.
