The Corly Croons- A novel by Jez Lowe
Available to pre-order from www.jezlowe.com and copies will be shipped in advance of the list publication date October 13th.
The story delves into the background of the circle of songwriters who came to be known as The Bards of the Tyne. Their work chronicled the life and times of Newcastle and the characters who lived and worked there, and many of the songs they wrote continue to be sung to this very day. But in “The Corly Croons”, a hidden mystery is discovered, a deep intrigue beneath the comic songs and gentle ballads that entertain the packed music-halls and penny-gaffs that were so popular around Tyneside at that time. The unravelling of that mystery is the story that Jez tells in the book.
