William Baines

Richard Bell has provided me with an interesting link: his Wild West Yorkshire website includes information about Karl Wood's friend, the composer William Baines (1899–1922):

Further information about this relationship can be found in:

Roger Carpenter (with decorations by Richard A. Bell), Goodnight to Flamboro’: The Life and Music of William Baines (Rickmansworth: Triad Press, 1977; rev. ed. Upminster: British Music Society, 1999).

Fiona Richards, 'William Baines and his Circle', Musical Times, Vol. 130, No. 1758, 1989,, pp. 460–63.

Tony Shaw, Windmill Wood: A Biography of Midlands Artist Karl Salsbury Wood (Nottingham, 1995) will be re-published and considerably expanded in either 2008 or 2009 under a slightly different title.

Tony Shaw, Windmills of Nottinghamshire : A Historical Account of Existing Mills and Mill Remains (Nottingham : Nottinghamshire County Council Planning and Economic Development, 1995) includes a large number of sketches by Karl Wood, the vast majority of which were made in the 1930s.
