Video premiere | Serious Sam Barrett – Last of the Yorkshire Outlaws

Yorkshire’s own traditionalist troubadour Serious Sam Barrett releases his latest record Where The Wild Roses Grow this week (you can check out our review here). While the album sees Barrett break out the banjo, there are still plenty of guitar tunes too, and now we can bring you the video premiere for one of the best – ‘Last of the Yorkshire Outlaws’. “I wrote this song as a tribute to all the drunks, misfits and rouges who make up the fabric of many pubs and bars in Yorkshire and the world over,” Barrett said. “A lot of people look down their noses at these barflys and miscreants but more often than I care to remember they have been my only audience so this is my tip of the hat to them.” Barrett identified the Duck and Drake pub in Leeds as his primary source for the lyrics, but this video was shot at the Manor House in Otley by Martin Thornton.
