Anthony and Gabby Robertson

500 years of folk history, ballads and travellers tales, passed generation to generation, will be making a special Insider appearance on Saturday courtesy of Tony and Gabby Robertson. They are the children of the legendary storyteller and balladeer Stanley Robertson and therefore the next custodians in a remarkable oral tradition. You can read more about the family in Stanley's obituary from the Guardian.

Many thanks to Sam Lee, pupil of Stanley's, a fine singer himself and organiser of the Magpies nest folk nights in London for putting this together.
