GUEST,Steve Gardham Songs about or from Bolton (42) RE: Songs about or from Bolton 08 Dec 09


I may be wrong as this is off the top of my head, but if you want to go back further wasn't Joe Geoghegan a Bolton lad? He wrote some cracking songs some of which entered oral tradition, Ten Thousand Miles Away, Hey John Barleycorn, Down in a Coalmine, Girls of Glossop Road etc., I've even seen 'When Johnny Comes Marching Home' put down to him. I have some of his sheet music c1860. On the other hand he may be from Bury or Burnley but worth checking. I know he was chairman of the Music Hall in one of these places.
