How will you define a "Yorkshire" song Ray?

One written by someone born in Yorkshire?
One written by someone living in Yorkshire?
One sung by someone either born or living in Yorkshire?

And what do you mean by not exactly traditional?

I'm really enjoying this!

I love "Beautiful Dale, Home of the Swale" , I've not heard it before and I only live 2 miles from the River Swale.

I shall continue to explore and no doubt find some further gems.

Thanks to all involved.

Beautiful Dale home of the Swale, is/was a favourite at the Sheffield Carols at Dungworth

Was a favourite of the late Billy Mills and now sung by Roger Hinchliffe son of Frank and son in law of Billy

Hazel ~ god knows is the answer to that one!

We will have to look at each one and then include it anyway! I suspect but please don't quote me on this is I am only one and a little one at that!!

"Home on the Swale" was introduced to the singing at Dungworth when Dave Smith replaced the previous organist at Dungworth and brought some rambling/singing friends with him from the pub at Lodge Moor (Three Merry Lads) where he regularly played the piano for singing.

Amongst these friends was Albert Broadhead. Albert was an ardent rambler and a great singer.

At a point in the carols Dave asked Albert to do a solo. He didn't do carol solos particularly but he did know that song. (We sing other songs that are not carols too).

The original source is not known (there's a job for you Paul!!) but Albert learnt it off a friend of his - Edgar Tissiman who was a National Park Warden. The song is also known as ""The Song of
Swaledale" and it was also sung by the Keld Singers. (Suggested starting points for your research Paul!!)

Albert Broadhead died in 1996. The song was carried on by a variety of songers, until he died Billy Mills - last year two people sang it - most weeks it was Geoff Lester.

The above information comes from a book that accompanied the CD of the Dungworth carols called "Hark Hark, What News", researched and produced by Ian Russell (CD and book). But I was there at the time, so the story is true!

I don't know if the CD is still available - try Village Carols in Google.

Hope this helps.

Dave

Folkiedave.....I leave the research to those with the required attributes.....I'm just a simple banjo playing soul! We might have to learn it though (not on the banjo, obviously) for one of The Swaledale Folk Club nights in Richmond.

Fascinating stuff. Interesting that the song was "collected" in Sheffield rather than in North Yorks though....but looking at the lyrics I guess it wasn't written by a local but more likely a visitor.

What a fantastic resource!! Well done to all involved. A superb way of keeping English tradition alive and well. I've already found a couple of gems - especially the Artillery Alphabet (from Woolwich) as I was born on Woolwich (South London).

Good luck with the phase two - look forward to seeing what happens.

The site is now listed in My Favourites!

Cheers folks

Just to make it clear - Albert undoubtedly picked up the song on his travels. Precisely where I have no idea - though Ian Russell may know. When I get a minute I'll ask.

Dave,
If you look at the prov notes on the site it mentions that Will first heard the song broadcast on radio 'Down your Way' as a lad.

I seem fated never to learn a song through anything other than hearing it sung live - there is something missing from this pc which means that I can't hear the recordings.

I did look on the WWW and could not find the missing doodad.

Ah well - it isn't as though I have nothing to sing...

Have you tried speaker Rum'n ?

Ian Russell is of course the Sheffield carols man and as Dave Eyre says has CDs of carols from all around Sheffield and into Derbyshire

Ian has spent very many hours researching and recording and transcribing this area

Ray Padgett made mention of the Yorkshire Garland Collection in another thread today, and I thought it was a good opportunity to refresh this thread and encourage people to take a look at this wonderful Website. Oh, and there is a nice picture of Ray and others on the Website.

In searching for THAT Website, I also found that The Yorkshire Garland is available in its entirety at Google Books.
