Mick Pearce (MCP) Coalowner & Pitman's Wife tune question (30) RE: Coalowner & Pitman's Wife tune question 10 Feb 19

There's a recording from 1955 on the Tobar an Dualchais site: Enoch Kent - Coal Owner and the Pitman's Wife, with the following note:

"Five verses (then tape runs out); there are usually nine verses in all. This song was written by collier William Hornsby of Shotton Moor, on the occasion of a miner's strike in Durham in 1844. The song was unearthed by a miner from Whiston in Lancashire in 1951 and popularised by A. L. Lloyd. Recorded at John McEvoy's Ceilidh. Guitar accompaniment."
