Thread Name: Songs about Whitby??!
Subject: RE: Songs about Whitby??!
You might also want to contact Richard Grainger, who has written many songs about Whitby, including Whitby Whaler, I think. Story goes, he was in the Museum at Middlesbrough, which had a dispaly about ... Whitby - or whaling - and, in a glass case was some sheet music .... for song that he wrote .... He explained the situation ... usual story but with a nice ending - I think that he and the Museum curator are still together   - aaahhhh
