One of the challenges when it comes to tracking down missing people for Six on Stage is knowing who’s missing. Are there four people listed against a song because two are unidentified for were there really just four people on stage?
Today I’ve added a new feature to highlight where I know there are people whose names are as yet uncovered.

But for most years, I’ll gradually be able to signpost who still needs tracking down – and if you know who one of these mysterious people is, please let me know!
Speaking of gradual work, I’m continuing to manually check all of the data on the site. I’m mostly working alphabetically and am currently on the letter M, with around 1,500 people still to go…
