Subject: Graeme Miles Songs Of Ironopolis
From: Hoblander
Date: 09 Jan 11 - 02:43 PM

If a bit of self publicity is good enough for our old mate Ray Padgett, then here goes.
The Ironopolis Singers proudly announce the release of their double
cd " Songs Of Ironopolis". The song and prose cycle chronicles the development of industrial Middlesbrough and surrounding area, in the North East of England, through the words, music and songs of Graeme Miles. Twenty one songs from the pen of one of the UK's finest songwriters.The full narration performed by Graeme himself. Some of the songs are classics like Ring of Iron and Blue Sunset, but some you will not have heard before. Some are in the books "Songscapes" and "Forgotten Songs Remembered", some are directly from Graeme's own early recordings.
The Ironopolis Singers are very proud to have been involved with this project, which is actually the first time Graeme has appeared on a officially sanctioned recording.
The price is £12.00 plus any UK or overseas postage and packaging.
We don't have an internettywebbythingy site just yet, but if you PM me I'll let you know how to get hold a copy.
Very few copies of Songscapes are available, but Forgotten Songs Remembered is very much available, again through me.
Thanks to all who have supported us over the last two years, those who have booked us at their festivals and folk clubs, and all of you who have come to see the show.
The next show is under development so watch this space.
Cheers
Kevin Hall

Just listening to the first CD. Really enjoying it! As someone who left Stockton-on-Tees when it was still in County Durham (1970),this is bringing back the sights and the smells of my childhood. I don't seem to have much of a sound memory of those times. CD thoroughly recommended. Wonderful cover photo too.

I sent a copy to Trevor Blogg who now lives in New Zealand. Old Teesside folkies will remember him,(Harvey's brother)and quote his comments.
"If Graeme (or Kevin Hall) was setting out to recreate something with the great qualities of Charles Parker's "Radio Ballads" then they have certainly succeeded. The CD's quality is superb and all the singing is all excellent."
Apart from performing hinself Trevor used to do all the techie stuff for concerts etc so comments on the quality are particularly gratifying. Congrats to Ken Hall for producing the CD.

Hello Ironopolitans
recently on the Jon Boden A Folk Song A Day site he sang Graeme's The Banks of the Tees, which just happens to be the opening song on The Songs of Ironopolis cd.
Jon also commented he was having trouble getting on to the web site,and others were complaining about dodgy links to an "Ironopolis " web site. Simple reason. We DO NOT have a web site ( yet). The only site I can think of that folks may be getting confused with is a fanzine site for supporters of a local working mens football team called Ironopolis.
Some news for fans of Graeme, we will be performing the whole show, with Graeme, at Whitby Folk Week in August.
Also at Middlesbrough Reference Library on 4th May 7.30pm
Copies of the cd are avaiable from me, see above 21 jan
Anybody searching for an original copy of Songscapes will be disappointed. it is now out of print, they have all gone, Forgotten Songs Remembered is still avaiable, though.
bye for now
Kevin

Hello just thought I'd update you all.
Our double cd Songs Of Ironopolis has been selling extremely well, thanks to all who have bought a copy.
We now have a companion book of all the lyrics to the 21 songs and all the words to the prose pieces for the modest sum of £2.00 plus £0.50 P&P UK. Available from me kevin.hall@ntlworld.com
Our next performance is at the Middlesbrough Town Hall on the 14th October as part of a charity concert to celebrate 100 years of the Transporter bridge (the tranny )Also appearing are Flossie and the Teesside Fettlers. Ironopolis Singers will be singing some new / old songs that Graeme has produced out of his magic attic, together with a new set of prose pieces.
Thanks to all who came and packed the Metropole Ballroom during Whitby Folk Week, it was a blast.
Watch this space for our new show.
Kevin
