Mining Institute Gig SOLD OUT 24th June

A fine night of mining heritage. Bethany Elen Coyle put together a programme of songs old and new, put in context by Les Turnbull, sung by the North East Solidarity Singers, Bethany, Johnny Handle, Benny Graham and Gareth Davies-Jones.

Bethany led the choir in the Durham Lockout with added poignant verses added for 21st parallels,  Johnny joined the choir for ‘The Banner Song’, Benny started his set with ‘If it’s over the wall yer oot’, and Gareth sang a set of new songs from ‘SEAM’ researched and written at the MI and finishing with Gresford.

Many thanks to organisers Bethany, Jennifer, Simon and all at the MI.
