Celebrating our Traditions; A Living Tradition CIC 22nd November 2018
Northeast England is home to a great tradition of Northumbrian music, from the fiddle and pipes tradition of the wild moors of Northumberland, to Victorian music halls of Tyneside and the protest songs of the pitmen poets of the Northumberland and Durham coalfield.
But it is of course home to so much more! Successive waves of incomers have brought their own musical traditions, to entertain us and move us here in Northeast England.
The Irish brought their vibrant and beautiful music, first in the 19th century and on many other occasions since. In the 1990’s Bosnians came to Tyneside fleeing the brutal war and genocide in the former Yugoslavia and brought their musical traditions. And even more recently, Czech and Slovak Roma have come to our shores to escape the pdesperate prejudice and persecution they were facing in Eastern Europe. They have also brought their musical traditions with them.
Come on 22nd November, to hear a celebration of all these musical traditions, in this beautiful corner of England, organised by A Living Tradition. It should be a truly great night!
