The Pitmen Poets – Wednesday 20th January

073ac74e-86c0-4e70-85e4-8055aeced2e1

The Pitmen Poets celebrate the songs, humour, and culture of North East England’s Coal Mining tradition, bringing together four of the region’s leading champions of its musical heritage.

Ex-Lindisfarne singer and writer Billy Mitchell, songman from Londons West End musical Warhorse, Bob Fox, leading exponent of Tyneside song Benny Graham, and much-covered Folk Awards nominee songwriter Jez Lowe – individually and collectively the Pitmen Poets.

With archive footage and photographs, this is a journey through the centuries of a once-great industry, from the songs that saw it thrive and dominate, to those that saw its demise and the resulting aftermath.
