Thread Name: Origin: Coal Not Dole (Kay Sutcliffe)
Subject: RE: info/ADD: who wrote Coal Not Dole?
Gavin Atkin, Paul Cowdell and myself have been musing over possible guests to invite for a festival of traditional music in Frittenden next Spring.

It transpires that Kay Sutcliffe and her father live in Aylesham on the former Kent coalfield. Also, the original tune was 'Oh, Tannenbaum!'
