Welcome to the Tykes’ Stirrings Web Site!

An amalgamation of Tykes News (West Yorkshire) and Stirrings (South Yorkshire)
Tykes Stirrings 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 Strrrings and its history by entering Tykes Towers.

Note our new new address: tykesstirrings.org.uk. If you have a web site with a link to the old Tykes News or Stirrings address we'll be much obliged if you could update it.
