Ross Campbell Songs about lifeboat disaster, 1886? (38) RE: Songs about lifeboat disaster, 1886? 24 May 14

We did a performance of "Beware the Fylde Coast's Sands - Wrecks and Rescues of the Lancashire Coast" for the RNLI in Lytham a few years ago. The show included one song by Ron Baxter concerning the Mexico disaster. The night's events included an auction to raise funds for the RNLI. One item was a bill-hook or machete-type tool (unsharpened to avoid tax!) which had been part of the Mexico's cargo. I bid on it but dropped out before its final price of around 90.

I will certainly try to get to the St Annes performance. See you at Fylde!
