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. Many of my albums relate to the talks shown on the ‘Talks about Lancashire’ page and have unfortunately sold out but there is a full list of my current CDs below.

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