Take Yourself A Wife


SKU: EDJ015 Category:


‘Take Yourself A Wife’ revives the work of songwriters popular in the northeast from the 17th to the early 20th century. The songs are poignant, angry or funny, with some memorable, sturdy melodies, and range from a gently thoughtful ballad written by a 19th-century miner, discussing the problems of emigration, through to a protest song from the same era complaining about a new fish market being built in Newcastle, or the witty title track, written by a Cleveland housewife.
