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.
No performances or plays planned at the mo, you'll understand. In 2020 I was to launch new play "Airey Tales". This was to be a major effort for the year, but it's now on hold so I can catch up with more songs and poems.
My "Tracking The Brontës" arrived on the coast after many West Yorks performances. It's been well received in Scarborough, at Whitby, Hull, Kirby Misperton, Beverley. See Reviews page. Also at Whitby Fine Arts Soc, at the Anne Brontë 200th birthday celebrations in Scarborough, at Guisborough U3A, at Scarborough Library, and for E.Yorks Family History Society. More performances booked for 2020/1
My Play "Making Light" which completed a six-venue tour in 2017, performed by Shipley Little Theatre is here on Video at Seven Arts Leeds, made by Zahoor Sakharkar of Haseen Multimedia © to whom megathanks. Takes a while to load. Then press play.
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 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.
