From Billy Elliot to Auf Wiedersehen Pet, from When The Boat Comes In to The Likely Lads – now be enthralled and entertained by The Pitmen Poets!
Billy Mitchell, Bob Fox, Benny Graham and Jez Lowe perform a night of songs and stories laced with North East humour and humanity.
Ex-Lindisfarne singer and songwriter Billy Mitchell, Warhorse Songman Bob Fox, leading exponent of Tyneside song Benny Graham, and much-covered Durham songwriter Jez Lowe individually and collectively celebrate the triumphs, tragedy, humour and hard times of North-East England’s coal mining tradition in an evening of music, song and spoken word.
“Whoever’s idea it was to bring these four together for a show should be awarded a gold medal for services to music.”
“sheer utter brilliance…a stunning story of triumph and tragedy”
