A local pioneer of folk song collection in the first half of the 19th century was Shakespearean scholar James Orchard Halliwell but it was not until the second folk revival in the 20th century that the full range of song from the county, including industrial folk song, began to gain attention.
The county produced one of the major figures of the revival in Ewan MacColl, but also a local champion in Harry Boardman, who from 1965 onwards probably did more than anyone to popularise and record the folk song of the county.
Perhaps the most influential folk artists to emerge from the region in the late 20th century were Liverpool folk group The Spinners, and from Manchester folk troubadour Roy Harper and musician, comedian and broadcaster Mike Harding.
The region is home to numerous folk clubs, many of them catering to Irish and Scottish folk music. Regular folk festivals include the Fylde Folk Festival at Fleetwood. (Wikipedia).
