TALK: The Captain's Apprentice
In January 1905, the young Vaughan Williams, not yet one of England's most famous composers, visited King's Lynn to find songs from 'the mouths of the singers'. Caroline Davison talks about her latest work 'The Captain's Apprentice' an unsual, evocative, non-fiction book, about his visit, how it changed his music, our cultural landscape and the people and traditions he collected from.
Before becoming a writer, Caroline Davison worked as a conservationist in the heritage sector for thirty years. Her publications include a novel, The Pleasure Garden, a children's book, The By-Mistake Guide to Norfolk, and a number of non-fiction essays. Caroline also writes and performs music and has been a singer in various bands and choirs since the age of seventeen. She lives and works in Norfolk.
