Albums and Downloads


I have recorded a number of dialect CD albums. They offer the listener a comprehensive experience of the differing approaches to this dialect tradition. All of the albums relate to the Prepared Talks cited on the ‘Talks about Lancashire’ page. There is a full list of my audio CDs below.

Please contact me if you wish to buy any of the available CDs. They are all £11 each which includes postage and packing. Look at the Contact page for further details.
