for example:

•A sing-along of 'It's a long way to Tipperary' medley in the Boldon Lad public house in Newcastle accompanied on banjo and spoons (1979).

Bah. The Boldon Lad is in South Tyneside. I'm not very impressed with the British Library's accuracy  ::)

"Music, shorn of labels and standing alone, when it is conceived, composed and performed with love and integrity, can elevate us all."
