On Saturday 21 April we held the second training day for those interested in carrying out oral history interviews. On arrival at the venue we were quite surprised to see how we were billed. No matter how ambitious our project is, we had never previously imagined it as a tribute to Swedish pop music!
The day went very well, with those in attendance full of ideas and questions. Alison Burgess of Dumfries and Galloway Libraries, Information and Archives gave an excellent presentation on her experience of recording in the region. As part of this presentation, Alison played some sound clips which really brought to life what the interviewees were talking about.
Fieldwork by those involved in the training days has now begun and we will keep you posted on developments, including on the development of the Study website.
