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.

The home harbour is in sight. Just two more stops after this Summer one.

For those of you whose subscription finishes during the coming year, here is a way of completing 2024. The costs below are on a sliding scale of two or one month blocks.

Unfortunately, from now on, we can only accept cheques, made out to Tykes News Organisation, (and sent to: TykesStirrings, 14 Sunny Hill Grove, BD21 1RU) or Bank Transfers (BACS). The bank details can be had by emailing distribution@tykesstirrings.org.uk. Please include your postal address in all letters and emails.

In other (good) news: FiloFolk, our huge database of folk music in the three Ridings, will continue past the closing date of Winter 2024 and through 2025. Michael Hardeman, our excellent miner of information on the internet, has agreed to continue to populate the website with your dates and events. Send your programmes, practice days, sessions & events to: filofolk@tykesstirrings.org.uk.

Nigel has much to say in the editorial: see some snippets over on the Current Issue page.

In the mean time — and to bring you down to earth — here’s a reminder of our stripped down advertising costs!
