'Songs Sung in South Yorkshire’


Will Noble & John Cocking

(click on the artistes name to see a photo and /or a short biography)


Will Noble and John Cocking have now been singing together for twenty one years and this CD celebrates the rich repertoire of songs they have learned in their native South Pennines.

Some songs come from their families while others have been handed down by the older generation of traditional singers, particularly at gatherings with the Holme Valley Beagles.

If you have seen Will and John perform, then you will find all your old favourites here. If you have not seen them perform, then you will enjoy some real Yorkshire singing.
