The Larks of Dean

A fascinating story of Rossendale’s musical heritage.

The Larks of Dean were a society of musicians formed during the industrial revolution "cultivated amongst the working classes to an extent unparalleled in any other part of the country".

Jean Seymour and friends from the Larks of Dean Quire introduce us to tales of splendid music making in the Rossendale Valley.
