Charles Ernest Catcheside-Warrington (1859–1937) was an English Music hall artist and songwriter from the late 19th century who became a recording artist, record producer and a collector and arranger of "Geordie" songs.


Catcheside-Warrington was born in Tyneside in 1857. He became a successful star in the national Music hall, based in London. He made his first recording on a cylinder in 1883. He eventually moved back to Newcastle in 1907, where he recorded "Come Geordie ha'd the bairn," Last Neet," and "The Neebors Doon Belaw." These successful recordings were followed by recitations, sketches and stories, including "The Cullercoats Fishwife," "Census Man and The Fishwife," and "School Inspector." In 1911, Catcheside-Warrington recorded "Hawke's Man at the Battle of Waterloo," "Cushie Butterfield," and "The Paanshop's Bleezin."[1]

During the boom in the music scene during the late 1920s and early 1930s, Catcheside-Warrington came out of retirement to make additional recordings.

He was a partner in a firm of market gardeners, nurserymen and seedsmen.[2] He died in 1937.
