Traditional Lancashire songs... where can I find them?!

Hi everyone!

If there's a place to find an answer to that question, I think I'm there...

I'm looking for some traditional Lancashire songs, but not just lyrics if the tune is known. Any ideas where I can find anything? Particularly looking for Darwen / Blackburn tunes.

Thanks!

Tre

It may be worth contacting Gregson Lane Folk Club - http://www.troubleatmill.btinternet.co.uk/gregson.htm

There's a cd called 'Deep Lancashire' that has many Lancashire songs on it, also look up Harry Boardman, the Mike Harding songbook and cds by Mark Dowding and Sid Calderbank. You might find more information at www.thelancashiresociety.org.uk

Hope that helps
