It is a journey in which key moments of social history provide the context for the song to take centre stage. Each song tells a story – it’s Grease, Grit and Grime, Mills, Mines and Machinery: poverty, struggle, love, humanity and the ability to look on the bright side of life. It is  a look at Lancashire Life during this time period through a different lens, it is a social history synopsis.

It’s St. Patricks Day too, our Irish millworker ancestors would have been having a knees up on this day a century ago.

Hot Supper.
