Sing United: This Land Is Mine

22nd Mar 2019

Event info

Start Time: 7.30pm

Tickets: £13.00 Children: £10.00


Description

Since the beginning of time, people have been fascinated by mining the land and discovering what lies underneath. Their working lives are filled with stories of hard labour, deep friendships forged in dangerous conditions, and an ever-changing industrial landscape. Their personal lives are families laced with both constant worry and huge pride.

These are their songs. 

The stories of Wales will be represented by the incredibly catchy “The Colliers” by Seth Lakeman, which tells the tale of the Gresford Disaster in 1934, and “Take Me Home”, a spine-tingling song originally written for the London Welsh Male Voice Choir by Edwards Hands. Songs by Sting (“We Work The Black Seam”) and U2 (“Redhill Mining Town”), will see Sing United pay tribute to the importance of the history of the British coal industry, and the often highly emotional personal stories of the people connected with it.

We’ll tell you what it’s like to “owe my soul to the company store” in the classic Johnny Cash song “Sixteen Tons”, and if would be impossible to sing the stories of mining communities without telling the tales of our region, so we will include the Geordie singalong “The Collier Lad”. The concert will see SING UNITED backed by a band of top class north-east musicians. The instrumental line up will be piano, acoustic guitar, violin, double bass and percussion.

The performance will be interpreted in British Sign Language by Cliff Lee.
