Wyndham-Read was asked by Lloyd to be part of the album ‘Leviathan’ on the Topic label. Soon after he started recording for Bill Leader. In the early 1970s Wyndham-Read started the ‘Maypoles to Mistletoe’ concerts which portray the seasons of the year through song, music, dance and verse. This show has been performed for the last 37 years and has in itself become a tradition at Christmas time in and around the Sussex area. Wyndham-Read is also the instigator of the well-acclaimed Song Links Project, these are two book- and- two CD sets a celebration of English Traditional Songs and their Australian variants, and Song Links 2 compares and contrasts English traditional songs with versions that have travelled over the Atlantic and been sung (and further developed) in North America with a cast of folk performers representing the cream of singers specialising in traditional songs from their own country. Wyndham-Read fell in love with the Australian Traditional songs and has been singing these as well as English Traditional songs since then. He was well-known for his involvement in the Folk scene in Australia in the early sixties at The Reata, Frank Traynor's, Emerald Hill, and other venues.
