sid Traditions Festival (18) RE: Traditions Festival 16 Jul 09

Eight years ago, Angie and Ken were reckless enough to give me a 90 minute spot on Sunday afternoon to do with as I pleased on the general subject of "Old Lancashire". A Lancashire Garland has been on every year since - and always a new show. The History of Lancashire Songs, The Cotton Famine, An Evening with Edwin Waugh, a series of plays and sketches, The history of the Jone o' Grinfilt songs, Love and Romance in Victorian Lancashire and this year a concert of Victorian Parlour Songs.

Chris Pollington and Mark Dowding recorded most of them live - so they're not lost.

I still perform these talks and shows and would like to publicly thank Ken and Angie for their support and encouragement of the Lancashire Dialect over the years.

Thank you both and I'll see you on Monday at the Club. (The Crown in Worthington just north of Wigan if anyone wants to come!)
