GUEST, Sminky Lyr Req: Songs by Harry Clifton (1832-1872) (161* d) RE: Help: Harry Clifton Songwriter 07 Jul 10


Very true, Steve. I just wish he'd live a bit longer (It's not the miles we travel, but the pace that kills!).

Here's a 'family gathering' I found in the John Johnson Archive of Printed Ephemera (Bodleian Library):

          Agricultural Hall, Brignorth

                One Night Only,

             Saturday, 30th August

         Popular Concert and Operetta Party
During the evening:

Miss Fanny Edwards (Mrs. H. Clifton) will sing

Ye maiden in springtime, (Dinorah), The Minstrel Boy, Whither, Ship Boy's Letter, &c.

Miss Annie Kinnaird will sing

Snake in the Grass, Bailiff's Daughter, While walking out so early, &c.

Mr. Redfern Hollins will sing

Death of Nelson, Dreaming all the day, Pilgrim of Love, &c.

Mr. E. C. Dunbar will sing

Selections from all the most refined effusions of the day, including

Ten Minutes too late, Don't be after Ten, Harry Clifton.


Inexplicably, the website gives the 'date of the event' as Tuesday November 23rd 1909. Fanny Edwards died in the US in 1908, of course.
