Subject: Eccles Wakes Song(s)
From: EllyMcC
Date: 11 May 11 - 08:08 PM

I'm writing a piece of street theatre for the Bridgewater Canal 250th celebrations - part of which involves Eccles Wakes. I've found the lyrics to the Eccles Wakes Song but can't find out if there's any music available to it. Does anyone know where I might find out about this ?

Ta in advance !

My mate and co-organiser of Swinton Folk Club, Ged, has written some. It was for another celebration to do with Eccles but I can't remember what. PM me and I can put you in touch with him. Chris - Librarian at Walkden, may also have details as he has something to do with the Eccles 'do'.

Cheers

Dave

Hi Elly - I have sent you a PM.

You may also be interested in this piece of music. Although I haven't been able to locate the dots anywhere you may have some better luck:-)

If you haven't already been in touch it would be well worth your while getting hold of Gary and Vera who are a mine of information on canal songs.

Good luck and let us all know when and where the event is.

Cheers

Dave

Funny thing is, Tim - In the song they tell of Banbury Cakes!

I always preferred Chorley Cakes myself - Not fond of flaky pastry.

Dave, you could always make your own, and they should be made with puff pastry and should not be flaky :=)

Ahhhh - Wondered why mine always seemed wrong :-) But I never wanted to start a thread with the words flaky and puff in the title...

Sorry Elly we've been digressing, when and where are the celebrations, I'm originally from Eccles and was in the 28th Eccles/ 2nd Worsley Sea Scouts, the troop was founded by my late Father on 21st October 1951. Our headquarters were in the Old Oil Warehouse, now converted to housing, which is close to the Packet House, although I'm not sure it was called that when I was a lad. I would be interested to learn more.

cheers

Main celebration is July 16th with the ' right royal regatta' ...... Reconstructing Queen Victoria's visit to the canal in 1851. There'll be things going on alal that weekend - and probably during the wek I think. There's info on Salford's website. Barton Theatre Co are involved a little in the 'official' bit at Worsley but we're mainly involved in Some street theatre revolving around Eccles Wakes in the 19th century. We'll be at the Waterside Pub/ restaurant off Parrin Lane Bridge in Winton - and also at the Monton Festival in early July and the Eccles Festival in September.   I'd be interested in including any songs from the mid 19th century that might have been sung at the Wakes ...... And any local singers who might want to be involved - we're not in the main a singing group though we're always happy to have a good go at songs !! So if any one out there knows of any songs, or might even want to help us sing them, let me know

Why was Queen V visiting a canal in 1851? They were very passe by then, 90 years after the opening of the Bridgewater Canal and 40 years before the Manchester Ship Canal?

Did you notice that the piece of music I linked to earlier was written to celebrate the visit in 1851? I just had a thought and checked John Adams Village Music Project - But it wasn't there either :-(

Ah well.

Hi Dave

Really sorry - missed your post upthread about the Ellesmere Polka. No idea how..... !   I'm wondering if Elsie Mullineux just 'owns' the image or the actual sheet music. She is, and her late husband was, very knowledgeable local historians. I'll contact her and see if she has the music. Thanks for the Gary and Vera link - I'll get in touch wth them.

Thanks to you and to all the others on this forum who are being so helpful to me..... a mere newcomer

I remember visiting Frank and Elsie in about 1975 when I was doing my Business Studies at Worsley tech. I did a project on the3 history of Salford and they were ever so helpful then.

Cheers

D.
