Dawn to Dusk in the Black Country by Giggetty

Brian Langtry, the founder member of the Black Country folk group Giggetty, has contacted me recently. Many years ago he did several black and white drawings featured in The Blackcountryman magazine, several of them illustrating the poems of Jim William Jones Dudley’s foremost serious poet who is featured on the “Dawn to Dusk” CD.

The album “Dawn to Dusk in the Black Country” was the first and best selling album produced by Giggetty and copies can be seen to change hands on auction sites quite frequently the album having become something of a collectors item.

Brian has recently digitally re-mastered the album, which can be purchased from and is now setting about getting the availability of this to the many interested folk of the Black Country.

I have suggested that Brian pens something for the next issue of The Blackcountryman, so we can learn a little more about Giggetty's past.
