Character description

Albert Lancaster "Bert" Lloyd (1908-1982), traditional music collector, singer, and scholar. Well-known for his left-wing views, he was responsible for the book "Come All Ye Bold Miners," considered the first book of industrial folk song in Britain. He frequently worked with another leftist performer, Ewan MacColl, to maintain the music of ordinary workers. He also served for a time as musical director of Topic Records, one of Britain's most important folk labels. He was known as a scholar, although there are some who suspect him of some editorial work on his materials.
