Herron Publishing

Herron Publishing was established in 2000 to make available classic texts and new writings on folk song and traditional culture. Since the first publication in 2001 of 'Boxing the Compass', a revised edition of Roy Palmer's 'Oxford Book of Sea Songs', the company has gone on to publish books that are instantly recognizable from their quality and their distinctive covers.

Herron Publishing was founded by Dave Eckersley. As a performer, singer and musician during the Second Revival in the late '60s and early '70s, Dave drew on sources that eventually went out of print. Using his twenty years experience in the retail book trade, he decided to produce these books for an emerging generation of singers.

Since then the production team has expanded to include Erica Hawthorne as editor and proof-reader, Kit Eckersley responsible for media and website design, Ali Crann copyeditor, and Bryan Ledgard who has the responsibility for layout and cover design.
