Lost voices from the North-East

25 November, 2017, 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Listen in to echoes from the past, when All Hallows’ Eve struck fear in people’s souls!

‘Lost voices’ retrieves and presents voices, melodies, and popular traditions in the North-East, from Anglo-Saxon to Victorian times. The show includes songs which inspired Stevie Smith, Walter Scott, and Dylan Thomas, haunting soul dirges, fire-and-brimstone preaching by Puritans, dances for the dead, worm ballads, and silent creatures of the night. With Hector Sequera, Barbara Ravelhofer, musicians, singers, a dragon, and a wild horse. Want to know more about music, theatre and performance traditions in Durham and beyond?

Experience the intangible heritage of the North-East here.
