Ian North Staffordshire songs (84* d) RE: North Staffordshire songs 07 Oct 04

I am also from the pottries and went to all he clubs in the area from mid 60s to 80's
I know the words to -through the smoke, Blackpool treat and sylicosis.
The songs that were written as part of a competition in the late 60's.
I think Jeff Parten knows one about Staffs miners - Of all the lads in staffordshire a collier lad for me. See Jason Hill who runs a club up there for Lumpy tumps - staffs dish.
Phil Colclough may be a good contact also.
See peter cheeman for songs written or adapted for the play The Knotty

I also found a song for the 1800's in a Norh Staffs Newspaper re a wrestling match between a staffs wrestler and a one from Notts.

Most folk music inthe Stoke area was wiped out by the introduction of
methodism whose brand of religion frowned on such music.
