At the launch of "Songs from the Black Meadow" at Battle Library in Reading on Wednesday 21st 2014 Jonny O'Sullivan, Elena Martin and Chris Lambert performed the very first public reading of a recently discovered Black Meadow Tale.
"A Minstrel Came out of the Meadow" tells of a man whose obsession with the music of a charismatic minstrel has unforeseen consequences. It was discovered only recently at the bottom of a shoebox containing notes and letters of Roger Mullins. It was verified by Professor Philip Hull of the University of York.
The tale has been published along with lyrics from "Songs from the Black Meadow" in a book of the same name. All profits from the sale of the book go to Worldwide Cancer Research. You can buy it here:
