Hello   eddie@eddie-lawler.co.uk    07948 244777   @Eddie_Lawler

Greetings from Eddie Lawler, aka  "Bard of Saltaire" now living in Scarborough. I write songs, musicals, poems and plays (see my news page). My work mixes fun with social comment, offering thought-provoking entertainment.


"Tracking The Brontës" arrived on the coast after many West Yorkshire performances. It's been well received in Scarborough, at Whitby, Hull and Kirby Mistperton U3As. See Reviews page. Also at Whitby Fine Arts Society in July, and goes at the Anne Brontë 200th birthday celebrations in Scarborough in January.  next is Guisborough U3A 29 Jan, and Scarborouhg Library 11am Sat 1 Feb


Sang at Robin Hoods Bay Folkfest, then on a boat at Scarborough Seafest end of July, at Scalby Folkfest end of August, details on Current Dates page... Maybe I'll perform this song (click) dedicated to the bellringers of West Yorkshire


My Play "Making Light" completed six-venue tour performed by Shipley Little Theatre. Video of performance at Seven Arts Leeds Sept 2017 by Zahoor Sakharkar of Haseen Multimedia © to whom megathanks. Takes a while to load. Then press play.


My 6th album of songs includes "Canal Child", see youtube film click to view, with children from Saltaire Primary School. Album title song is "Saltaire 'll Do" - click to listen!


Listen to the recording (one hour in length) of my radio-play about Wolfgang Borchert: "Messenger Without Weapon" (wait for upload).


Some asked for Brontë Railrap, which is part of "Tracking The Brontës" (but it's not ALL like that!).


I've two collaborations:-In "Two Tykes on t' Loose" I add my songs to Rod Dimbleby's Yorkshire stories, see Current Dates and reviews page.  My musical support for Steve Bottoms' "Salt's Waters"  is also acclaimed. See "People" on Multi Story Water and other stuff re Bradford Beck.
