Greetings from Eddie Lawler, aka “The Bard of Saltaire”. That’s a bit flattering, but I'm trying to live up to it. I write songs, musicals, poems and plays. Some of this can be described as "local" but my interests are general. My work mixes fun with ‘serious’ social comment, intended to provide thought-provoking entertainment. My mobile number is 07948 244777
