GUEST, Jim Hancock nic jones - did he popularise 'Rose of Allendale'? (20) RE: nic jones - did he popularise 'Rose of Allendale'? 12 Jan 07


My dad used to sing it (late 40's / 50's, that's the decades not his age). I learned it at school in Miss Welfare's singing class in 1954. So I can say with conviction that it was popular in Grassmoor, (a small mining village in Derbyshire)and sung regularly.
Of course folk music hadn't been invented then and these were just songs people sang.

All the best

Jim Hancock
