Tykes' News

It’s been a while since we hit 80 pages but this time, with so much more than just Filofolk to read, we’ve had to increase the size to fit it all in. It’s a headache for our long suffering printers, the take-no-prisoners treasurer and, with the Royal Mail in the wings waiting to pounce on overweight packages, it’s a delicate balancing act.

Three major articles this time. Two on our dear friend Maggie Boyle and an interview with Anna Shannon by TN debutant, Lucy Moon. Anna, from a forest near Scarborough, is increasingly being noted for her fine songwriting.

“Please to see the King” gets a forensic going over with a fine-toothed comb in RE~view, we have news in the News section, clubs in the Club News section and performers in the Performers News section and Lydia lines up the empties and waxes nostalgic. The editor’s in her heaven and all’s right in Tykes’ World.
