February 2017, Eddie Lawler writes: I've already launched my 6th album of original songs, am working on the next, and sing 'em at occasional gigs. I've three collaborative performances on the go this year: "Tracking the Brontës" with soprano Charissa Hutchins, "Two Tykes on T'Loose" with storyteller and chair of Yorkshire Dialect Society Rod Dimbleby, and "Salt's Waters" with Steve Bottoms, details on my website. And with the help of newly-founded Shipley Little Theatre I'm planning to launch a new play "Making Light" at the Saltaire Festival in September.
