Focus on Farmers: Art and Hill Farming (ed Jennie Hayes). A definitive record of the Focus on Farmers project, with essays by Lucy Lippard, Anthony Gibson, Jennie Hayes, Simon Timms, Phil Smith, and Richard Povall & Nancy Sinclair, and a foreword by Prof. Ian Mercer CBE. Published by Halsgrove in 2007.

" Francis Bacon long ago observed, “adversity doth best discover virtue” and I have no doubt that, over time, a younger, more dynamic, more entrepreneurial and more self-confident farming industry will emerge, that is more in tune with the times and with its customers. Yes, it will probably be smaller, but that need not mean that vast swathes of the countryside go to rack and ruin. Thanks to the various environmental schemes, the vast majority of Devon will continue to be managed, even if, for the time being at least, rather less of it is farmed." [from Anthony Gibson's essay, "Devon Farming – the challenge of change"]

AHA-011 soundings

Soundings (3 CDs) Radio programmes from three communities in rural Devon. Artists are Jennie Hayes & Kate Green, and Sue Palmer. From the award-winning soundings project.

'The three CDs recorded for Soundings make very moving listening.  At just under an hour each, they sensitively weave together the voices of young and old, responding to questions, recollecting stories, revealing concerns, voicing hopes and fears, laughing and singing.  They offer an intimate insight into aspects of the frailties and strengths of old age, and reflect what was clearly an enriching shared experience for all of those involved.'  Dartmoor Magazine December 2010. 


Dartmoor Changes (3-CD set). (project link)

Recordings of all of the ringable peals of bells on Dartmoor (with artists Richard Povall, Andrew Stevens and Hannah Standen).

Aune Head Arts are to be heartily congratulated for this remarkable project, which reaches to something vital in the long history of Dartmoor communities and their churches." Review by Tom Greeves, Dartmoor Magazine Spring 2006.
