I spent somewhat over a decade living in the Midlands, where I ran a folk club. I booked Trefor and Vicki Williams repeatedly – lovely people with a mix of traditional and original songs. ‘Timeless Land’ became the soundtrack for going to Avebury, back when I used to do that regularly for Druid rituals. That alone would be enough to make it fairly loaded.
Vicki died in 2010, just a few months before I left the Midlands, and my folk club. I stopped singing Timeless Land, because I no longer could, it just made me weep. But, it’s a wonderful, evocative song with a gorgeous tune, and the only way to keep a song alive is by singing it, and the best thing I can offer to Vicki’s memory is to help keep her music out there.
Months ago, I got permission from Trefor Williams to record this. It’s taken me a while to actually stand in front of the camera, but here it is.
