GUEST,Joe Moran Origins: On Morecambe Bay (Kevin Littlewood) (49) 'On Morecambe Bay'- a great song! 06 May 07

I was mentioning on another thread how great this song is. Reckoning that my previous link was far to complicated - and mudcaters therefore won't be revisiting that thread - there's a simpler link below. In the past few days I've been finding out more about Kevin Littlewood - the performer/writer of the song. Kevin is in his mid-50s and has been around as a performer for over 40 years. It appears that he has always been considered a prodigious talent but somehow has never attained national folk celebrity status. This song should change all that. The song concerns the deaths of 23 migrant chinese workers drowned while picking cockles on the treacherous sands of Morecambe Bay in the north-west of England.
