concertina ceol Songs about Yorkshire & Lancashire (111* d) RE: Origins: Yorkshire / Lancashire 24 Apr 07

As a native of Sheffield and a Yorkie I am surprised that "Swaledale" or "Song of the Swale" hasn't been mentioned. I had the pleasure of hearing Billy Mills sing it about fifteen to twenty years ago before the carols got "popular". I sing the song most weeks in my current stamping ground of the weald in kent. The last verse about being away from home gets me every week!

I've always had a soft spot for Tony Capstick's New World Symphony/"Thei dun't know thei born today", especialy as our family was aquainted with Tony Capstick before the alcohol got him.

Also I couldn't see any reference to Joshua Jackson above? He was a miller who compiled about 500 tunes, songs and dances around 1800. (I think he played fiddle).
