Reg Meuross Presents 12 Silk Handkerchiefs - A Song Cycle

Aldeburgh Jubilee Hall, Aldeburgh, IP15 5BN
Wed 18th September 2019 7:30PM
A song cycle of folk music from Reg Meuross's 13th album.

Reg Meuross’s moving work of social and political history, inspired by Brian W Lavery’s book 'The Headscarf Revolutionaries', opens a window on Hull’s Hessle Road fishing community and fighting fishwife Lilian Billoca’s successful campaign for improved trawler safety in the aftermath of the 1968 Triple Trawler Disaster.
Joined on stage by Hull musicians, Mick McGarry and Sam Martyn, Reg’s powerful songs are interwoven with narration from Brian W Lavery and rare archive footage from the time the ships went down.
Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England
