Hello   [email protected]    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.


In 2020 I was planning to launch a new play, "Airey Tales". With good luck it will now launch on 15 Sept 2021 at Saltaire Festival and then undertake a local tour, kindly supported by (and in support of) Aire Rivers Trust.


After many West Yorks performances, my "Tracking the Brontës" presentation has been well received in Scarborough and East Yorkshire  See Reviews page, including at the Anne Brontë 200th birthday celebrations in Scarborough.


My Play "Making Light" which completed a six-venue tour in 2017, performed by Shipley Little Theatre is here on Video (press play >) at Seven Arts Leeds, made by Zahoor Sakharkar of Haseen Multimedia © to whom megathanks. Can send you the script, just ask.


My 6th album of songs includes "Canal Child", see youtube film 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, from "Tracking The Brontës" (but it's not ALL like that!).


I've two collaborations:-In "Two Tykes on t' Loose" my songs with Rod Dimbleby's Yorkshire stories, see 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.
