Songs from Yorkshire & Other Civilisations by Graham Metcalfe

Summary

Recently re-released as a CD after re-mixing and re-mastering.

A mixture of traditional and music hall songs with a Yorkshire flavour. All the tracks are sung unaccompanied by a Yorkshire man with real conviction for the material, some in dialect and some with additional harmony voices.

Graham says of himself - Born at an early age in a Yorkshire village, the only music to follow was rock n roll. However, it lost something in the dialect, so after trying this and that, I stumbled into folk music, which at first I treated like an old sock - at arms length - but it soon grew on me and its been downhill ever since.
