Walter Pardon

Performer 

Walter (1914 - 1996) was a singer and musician Melodeon from near North Walsham, Norfolk. A carpenter by trade, he sang for the love of it and was reputedly bemused by the Folk Clubs and Folk Concerts which had sprung up in the second revival. For him, it had never gone away. He learnt his songs from 'Uncle Billy Gee' who in turn had learnt them from his father so going back to the 1840s at least. They in turn came from broadsheets as the popular songs of the time.

Recordings:
