Sing United: This Land is Mine: For the People who Worked the Land

Special event

Sat 16th March, Woodhorn Museum

2pm

We are delighted to welcome Sing United to perform songs from 'This Land is Mine: For the People who Worked the Land'.

Since the beginning of time, people have been fascinated by mining the land and discovering what lies underneath. Their working lives are filled with stories of hard labour, deep friendships forged in dangerous conditions, and an ever-changing industrial landscape. Their personal lives are families laced with both constant worry and huge pride.

Sing United’s performance will pay tribute to the importance of the history of the British coal industry, and the often highly emotional personal stories of the people connected with it.

Created by Musical Director Mark Deeks, Sing United captures the positive potential of people and music in one unique community singing group. The music of Sing United combines folk with pop and soul. As well as bringing you some of the most moving and compelling songs from popular music history, new and original music is created especially for each show. This means that the identity of Sing United stays relevant and exciting. Every project also features music and messages made in or about the region the singers call ‘home’. The stories and people of the region – this is music for and from the community.

Sing United also focus on performing in places that might not always host live music. Whether museums, galleries, public spaces of all kinds, Sing United want to take singing to the people. You can find out more about Sing United here: https://singunited.co.uk/

This performance is a free event as part of your Woodhorn Museum (or Museums Northumberland) annual membership.
