No Redemption Songs

Event location: WCML

Date: 18th Jun 2015

Event time: 19:00 to 21:30

A film and music performance with songwriter Brenda Heslop, her band Ribbon Road and  photographer Keith Pattison, made to mark 30 years since the miners’ strike.

Keith documented the strike at Easington Colliery through an in-depth series of black and white photographs following the striking miners and their families through the optimism of August, through the deepening pessimism of winter, to the final vote to return to work.  After meeting with Keith during 2013, Northumberland-based songwriter Brenda wrote a 10 piece song cycle, No Redemption Songs,  inspired by the photographs and recent visits to Easington Colliery.

Admission £10 on the door.
