I assume that my ancestors derived much of their musical entertainment from listening to colliery bands or from singing hymns on Sundays. I wonder what they would have made of rock concerts and festivals, not to mention ipods. Reason for these musings is that Norwegian Wood festival is on at the moment and for the past 4 days I have been able to hear the music from my balcony. A couple of the featured artists have been from my part of the world. Both Bryan Ferry and Sting are from North-East England.
