My contribution to Scarborough's "Big Ideas By The Sea" Festival, on 28 May, celebrated the 175th anniversary of the day Anne Brontë passed away in Scarborough, with the presentation of "Tracking the Brontës" at St Mary's Church, just yards from Anne's grave.  A film of this event is in preparation.  And "Tracking..... has just found itself on the road again with a trip to the appreciative U3A group in Hessle, near Hull.

Greetings from Eddie Lawler, aka  "Bard of Saltaire" now living in Scarborough, Yorkshire. I write songs, musicals, poems and plays,


My work mixes fun with social comment, offering thought-provoking entertainment.

My presentation with original music "Tracking the Brontës" is currently touring (see Brontës page) and is based on the musical "Bells" (see Theatre page). My popular Brontë Railrap is also here, from "Tracking The Brontës" (which is not ALL like that!).


My 6th album of songs includes "Canal Child", filmed with children from Saltaire Primary School - view here. Album title song is "Saltaire 'll Do". (Listen on Songs page)

I've two collaborations:- In "Two Tykes on t' Loose" my songs support 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.  I'm not the best swimmer, but I seem to be attracted by watery themes.
