GlosTrad Folk Radio turns its attention to the Gloucestershire Wassail.  The song is sung all over the world thanks to Vaughan Williams inclusion of The Gloucestershire Wassail in the 1st Edition of the Oxford Book of Carols.  Our guests Carol & Gwilym Davies talk about collecting wassail songs.  We also hear field recordings, Puzzlejug and a concert performance by Richard Chidlaw and Michael Gardner.
