A musical evening,
featuring poems by Joseph Skipsey, a self-educated coal miner, set to music by
his great-great-grandson, Chris Harrison.Joseph Skipsey, ‘The Pitman Poet’, was born in Northumberland in 1832. He began colliery work aged seven. Having
taught himself to read & write, he published his first book of poems in
1859. Chris has set 24 of Skipsey’s
poems to music, calling the project “Carols from the Coalfields”, after the
collection which Skipsey published in 1886.
The songs offer a rich & varied picture of life in the mining
communities, while describing issues & experiences still relevant
today. His CDs, volumes 1, 2 & 3,
will be on sale (£5 each.)
