STEEL CITY TALES

GUEST EPISODE · WITH SIMON HEYWOOD

Simon Heywood shares the tales of a ghoulish Barghest that stalked Lore & Legend's home city of Sheffield (the UK's 'Steel City'), and a blind fiddler with a puzzling request. Rick interviews Simon about his career as a lecturer and storyteller, and the rich roots of storytelling in local history and folk culture around the world. Plus, hear Yorkshire folk singer Ray Hearne perform the political protest songs of the eighteenth-century Sheffield filecutter and ballad singer Joseph Mather!
