No great music was composed in the Yorkshire Dales, but popular tunes were absorbed into daily life at concerts and dances, with musical accompaniment by fiddle and melodeon.

Chapel folk reveled in hymns through which the Bible was set to music.

The strains of brass bands were to be heard on every hand. Songs written about the Settle-Carlisle railway are rich and diverse.

Music of the Yorkshire Dales by W R Mitchell is a joyous and tuneful compilation, featuring some original scores.Ref: 27
