Tim Salt Origins: The Lorry Ride (from Rusby/Roberts) (11) RE: The Lorry Ride 16 May 00

Welcome Eric.

I first heard this performed by Steve Turner in the mid 80's and thought it was a brilliant song then as I do now. I didn't know that Kate Rusby had also recorded it.

The version I have is by Steve Turner on a 1986 LP called "Braiding". In the sleeve notes he says "The Lorry Ride has been one of my favourite songs over the past year and is one of many fine works by Liza Tubb of Buxton in Derbyshire. The tune is the Irish "Casadh An Tsugain". The song was inspired by a newspaper cutting".

So there you go........
