Sources for Newcastle Music-
The evolution of this project.
Originally these pages were composed to reflect the discography of the Whisky Priests (a musical group from Durham). As time went on the scope expanded to favorite Newcastle songs. The first step was to include all of the songs of Joseph Cawhall's book of 1888. This done we will turn to John Stoke's Northumbrian Minstrelsy and then to the collection of John Bell. We have completed work with 
bell and have turned our attention to the chapbooks of Fordyce and Allan's great volume. As with any collection selection is at times difficult. The tradition is composed of many facets- Miners, Keelmen, Soldiers, City Professionals and residents all took part. The mines have their songs of action and of strike and the border at times takes part. We look mainly for songs which lace these traditions together. Excuse us for not getting too close to the border or to remote military exploits or town politics nor too far into the mines.

Joseph Cawhall,
Cawhall was a producer of woodcuts, and a colector of song and antiquities and art. His main occupation
was that of ropemaker. He was born in Newcastle in 1921. Crawhall died  in London July 7, 1896. Cawhall
cites as his cource Mr. John Stoke the collector responsible for Northumbrian Minstrelsy.Crawhal claims
to have collected only the "best and most popular Songs" of local Poets. He rejected "Political, pseudo-Military,
and Athletic" songs.
All of the songs which were printed with notation have been included.
