FTX 425 - BONNY TYNESIDE

AN ANTHOLOGY OF NORTHUMBRIAN SONG

Star of the show must be the shepherd, Jimmy White, recorded shearing his sheep at Whittingham, who has equal fame at Folktrax for his dialect speech. Other singers are local farmers in the country supplemented with city concert singers: Fred Lawson with guitar and some of the most popular Tyneside songs and folklorist, Sylvia Moore, playing guitar accompanied by her Dutch husband, Bernard Broere on oboe and harpsichord.
