A Tale of Exile and Migration
Join some of Britains leading folk musicians for a timely re-telling of Peter Bellamys legendary folk ballads THE TRANSPORTS often cited as Bellamys greatest work. Here is a rare chance to see BBC Award Winners THE YOUNGUNS, FAUSTUS, NANCY KERR and members of BELLOWHEAD together on stage. This new production combines amazing music with spell-binding story-telling. The Transports tells the incredible tale of a family destroyed by poverty and crime, but resurrected by exile to the new colony of Australia. With fresh script and musical arrangement, this famous show re-emerges within a modern context of mass migration. It features musical arrangements by PAUL SARTIN of Bellowhead and Faustus. Twice BBC Folk Award winners THE YOUNGUNS bring their trademark live dynamism! Further musical excellence comes from this illustrious band of top British folk musicians. Storyteller MATHEW CRAMPTON has created fresh narration for the show, amplifying its central tale into a broader exploration of exile and migration.
