Greetings from Eddie Lawler, aka until recently as "Bard of Saltaire" (find the missing syllable, bollard?) now resident of Scarborough. I write songs, musicals, poems and plays.

Some asked for the Brontë Railrap. It's part of "Tracking The Brontës" - a whistle-stop tour with soprano Charissa Hutchins of some of the places they visited, performed 2016 in Leeds, Saltaire, Ilkley and at Kirkstall Abbey to sumptuous praise (see Reviews page) In 2017 we took it to Adel, to Haworth, to Shipley, Rawdon, East Morton, to U3A in Cookridge, and to Yorkshire Archeological and Historical Society at Swarthmore Leeds. You can book this, and/or two more collaborations:-


In Two Tykes on t' Loose I add my songs to Rod Dimbleby's Yorkshire stories, see Reviews page. My musical support for Steve Bottoms' "Salt's Waters" has also been acclaimed.
