Welcome to the Mitford Music blog

My dad is a songwriter from the North East of England.  He’s been writing songs since he was a teenager.  He started with pop tunes but really made his mark with his folk songs documenting important events in the North East and aspects of daily life.  I’ve been keen to type up his songs so figured I would kill two birds with one stone and do it as a blog!  I hope you find this journey as interesting as I do.

Mitford Music was the name of our record label when we recorded some of this music as a family band.  I’ll talk about that more as the blog develops so stay tuned.
