” Worthy work carries with it the hope of pleasure in rest,

the hope of the pleasure in our using what it makes,

and the hope of pleasure in our creative skill.”

William Morris

The Bedford Songbook is a celebration of local artists and musicians brought together to create a book that recognises our exceptional local talent. All the songs contained in the book have been written and illustrated by Bedford folk. The Bedford Songbook recognises and embraces the folk values of arts and culture that are generated by and belong to us.

This is a small sample of the musicians and artists who contribute to the living, thriving arts in our town of Bedford.

Illustrated by The Circus of Illustration members and hand bound, this book of 9 original songs has been paired down to allow fellow musicians to take them and make them their own.

The songs have been transcribed and edited by Roger Illingworth.

The musicians and artists paired together are;

Rebecca de Winter and Emily Ross

Betty Frances and Kristian Purcell

Jack Sharp and Scarlett Tierney

Johnny Parry and Katie Allen

Grubby Mitts (Andy Holden)and Katie Allen

Martyn Shouler and Simon Abbott

Simon Gutteridge and Assim Heetun

Davy Willis and David Litchfield

Christian Webb and Kristina Bullen

The Cover Illustration has been done by Marisa Straccia.
