        The Traditional Idiom

 

 

        Why the fascination for the tradition but the conscious decision to write new songs?

        The Stories Behind The Songs

 

 

        Here are the stories that gave rise to the songs mentioned on this site. There are stories from Bedfordshire and also the story of Shropshireís 18th century iron industry which inspired the songs of Shropshire Iron. The Bedfordshire stories are categorised by the town, village or area to which they relate.
