Woven Into Song in Huddersfield
June 16, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Woven Into Song is a performance of a new piece of music that will explore the stories of the original industrial revolution mill workers and of the South Asian communities who were drawn to Kirklees by the textile industry. Written by Boff Whalley, ex-Chumbawamba guitarist/songwriter and now of Commoners Choir, with Hardeep Sahota, Mandeep Samra, Boliyaan singers and percussionists, it draws on the recollections of people who worked in the textiles industry and explores the common experience of fighting for our rights.
Performed by choirs from Kirklees and South Asian singers and percussionists, it will create a conversation between different languages, musical styles and experiences.
After the performance at Holmfirth Arts Festival in the afternoon, this more intimate free performance will help to round off the end of the festival and will last for approximately 20 minutes.
