Administrative or biographical history

Susan Spain-Dunk (1880-1962) was a British light classical music composer. Born in Folkestone, she was educated at the Royal Academy of Music, where she later taught harmony and composition, and initially earned some success in the sphere of chamber music. But it was in light music that she made her reputation, and particularly at the Henry Wood Promenade Concerts in the 1920s. Many of her compositions have a Kentish flavour, reflecting her origins there.
