There is a new CD of Ed Pickford singing some of his mining songs *himself*--long overdue after so many brilliant versions by others. (The most recent cover: Archie Fisher and James Keelaghan with the Barra McNeils on their recent Celtic Colours collaborative CD singing 'Strange Lover is a coal mine'.)

The CD is:

Strange Lover is a Coalmine: The Mining Songs of Ed Pickford.
On Hooky Mat records, available from Anthony Robb, sold to benefit a cancer charity
here here

Very powerful collection; some new songs as well as old favourites. Among the new, a great one about Mother Jones that you can hear in another version on youtube

Some of the songs here have travelled so far that they are sometimes erroneously ascribed to trad such as: Pound a Week Rise, The Worker's Song, Farewell Johnny Miner--sadly, they are as relevant and necessary today as when they were first written.

Can't wait to hear this collection.   I remember seeing Dick Gaughan singing Farewell Johnny Miner many years ago and more recently Tom McConville with Strange Lover ...   Ed Pickford is a marvel, a real inspiration, and it's great that the proceeds from the album should go to such a worthwhile cause.
