Dad’s now finished his latest Trent-related song, and here it is. It’s now called Tales of the Trent.
It’s a slightly tinny recording, just done on his computer, but I do think he’s got an amazing voice. (I may be biased, of course).
The words have changed slightly since he sent me the lyrics I posted the other day. But it’s still a journey along the Trent, taking in: the source near Biddulph, Burslem and its potteries, Burton and its famous ale, murders at Nottingham Castle, Newark Castle and the death of King John, and King Canute trying to turn the tide at Gainsborough.
It’s definitely a river with a lot of stories to tell…
