SUMMARY

Four champions of the North East’s musical heritage celebrate the triumphs, tragedy, humour and hard times of its coal mining tradition. This is a journey through the centuries of a once-great industry with a collection of traditional and contemporary songs, stories, and archive footage, telling of life in the region’s mining communities. Together for the first time, four lads from the pit villages: ex-Lindisfarne singer Billy Mitchell, singer and instrumentalist Bob Fox, Tyneside song exponent Benny Graham and Durham songwriter Jez Lowe perform as a first-class team.
