Subject: RE: info/ADD: who wrote Coal Not Dole?
Hello Bob!

If you want info on the Kent coalfields, try Simon Evans or Paul Cowdell. Yhe latter lives in East Ham but comes from Newchurch and was researching some of Kent's tradition as part of an MA thesis. Both met members of the Snowdown Colliery band. I also have a bespoke CD of songs given ti me by the late Peter Kennedy recorded by a lady whose family worked in the mines in the Eastry area.
