Songs My Mother Never Taught Me

Have the musical traditions of your family been lost? What was the music your family knew one hundred years ago?


With so many sources of music available through technology, we can lose the songs of our ancestors. I am especially interested in the songs that may have been sung in East Shropshire in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

Here are some links you might like to explore:

English Folk Dance and Song Society

English folk and traditional music on the Internet

Folk music of England

If you come across music sung around Lawley, Dawley, Red Lake, Coalmoor, Little Wenlock and Ketley Bank before the advent of radio, please let me know.

I especially appreciate historical insights.
