Roy Palmer, one of England’s most active and popular folklorists and song collectors, died in February 2015. His books and articles have introduced many people to the tales and songs of their region and of the country as a whole, and he was an unselfish helper to many researchers and singers who sought to tap his store of knowledge. In 2016 an annual lecture was instituted in his name, to give a platform to speakers on an aspect of traditional song, music, folklore, or popular culture, enabling them to share their own knowledge in like fashion.
