GUEST,Don Wise Origins: Songs from the Peak District (11) RE: Origins: Songs from the Peak District 26 Jul 13


Back in the early 1970s, when I still lived in the UK, I did a bit of 'digging' in the Local History section of what was then Derby Borough Library. This yielded various odds'n'sods such as versions of "Lord Thomas and Fair Eleanor","The Female Drummer", "The Uttoxeter Souling"( OK- East Staffs!), "Lumpty Tums" as well as assorted smaller items. Since there were no tunes given I was able to amuse myself making them up or adapting them from other songs. "The Uttoxeter Souling" seems to have got about a bit in the mean time!
