The KTB Music Lunchtime Recital series welcomes celebrated local Lanky dialect specialist Sid Calderbank

for an afternoon of celebrating Lancashire literature and song heritage. As a native dialect speaker, Sid has

been researching and collecting songs, stories and

poems of old Lancashire for the past 30 odd years, performing them only at impromptu events, at folk

and art festivals as well as local clubs.

Sid is an active member of the Edwin Waugh Society,

The Lancashire Society and help and support from

Cock Robin Music has enabled him to record everything

he does for posterity, "to keep it from oblivion". He

hopes his efforts will help to preserve our ancient

language for future generations.
