The Playford Pandemic Project

Music saved my sanity during the Covid pandemic. On my husband Julian's birthday (December 16, 2020) I began recording and sending out an English Country or folk tune a day, with vignettes and commentary, to friends and family. By May, 2021, the list topped 220. It became my reason for getting up every morning! You can enjoy them all on this website. Here are the tune descriptions, listed alphabetically, singly, or by the first tune of a medley.
