Welcome to the Tykes’ Stirrings Web Site!
An amalgamation of Tykes News (West Yorkshire) and Stirrings (South Yorkshire)Tykes’ is a quarterly print magazine about folk music, song and dance. It covers Yorkshire and surrounds, and is read by people as far afield as the US and Australia; even by one or two in Lancashire! You can find out more about Tykes’ and its history by entering Tykes’ Towers.
Tykes´ Stirrings Spring Issue
No1: SPRING 2020So it happened! Against all the odds we managed, with few feathers ruffled, to bring the two counties into one Tykes'Stirrings zone. There is still work to be done and we are planning a spread of interesting articles to cover the regions and genres that the two magazines inhabited. Over time, we hope to become one whole, not separated by the arbitrary 1974 boundaries dreamed up by outlandish politicians.
Here's to the future.
