Lost Voices from the North-East
Listen in to echoes from the past, when All Hallows’ Eve struck fear in people’s souls! With Hector Sequera, Barbara Ravelhofer, musicians, singers, a dragon, and a wild horse.
‘Lost voices’ retrieves and presents voices, melodies, and popular traditions in the North-East, from Anglo-Saxon to Victorian times. The show includes songs which inspired Stevie Smith, Walter Scott, and Dylan Thomas, haunting soul dirges, fire-and-brimstone preaching by Puritans, dances for the dead, worm ballads, and silent creatures of the night. With Hector Sequera, Barbara Ravelhofer, musicians, singers, a dragon, and a wild horse.
