THE LANCASHIRE LADS

By JOHN KIRKPATRICK



Here is a link to a performance of the song on YouTube

YOUTUBE "Lancashire Lads - Song of the Spanish Civil War"

The video tells us that it was

"Sung at the re-unveiling of a plaque in the John Harvard Library to honour Southwark residents who joined the International Brigades to defend freedom. They are singing this in the play "Dare Devil Rides to Jarama " at the Bussie Building, Peckham ".

Does anyone know anything more about this song such as who it is performing and who wrote it and when? "Dare Devil Rides to Jarama " is a play about International Brigade volunteer and speedway rider Clem Beckett which is currently on tour in England . https://www.list.co.uk/event/644344-dare-devil-rides-to-jarama/ The Lancashire Lads, with non Spanish Civil War lyrics, is an older song with numerous threads devoted to it here on Mudcat. I guess that someone has put a new set of words to the older tune for the play?
