Get your diaries out!

And you can now forget about our performances being on the Thursday before the first Friday of every month - from now on it really is the first Thursday of the month (except for every January when it is the second Thursday) (except for January 2019 when it is the second Friday!). Much easier than before!

 

Mat Callahan and Yvonne Moore : Thursday 4th July

Mat Callahan is a musician and author originally from San Francisco. Recent projects include the re-publication of Songs of Freedom by Irish revolutionary, James Connolly, the recording and publication of Working Class Heroes and the launch of Songs of Slavery and Emancipation.

Yvonne Moore is a singer and band leader originally from Schaffhausen. In addition to recording numerous albums of her own music, Moore is co-founder and treasurer of the Association "Art in History and Politics." Her exploration of the songs of Sarah Ogan Gunning led to the making of Working Class Heroes.

The latest CD, Working Class Heroes, contains 20 songs written by both by folk canon heavyweights and lesser-known but equally gifted songwriters. Both beautiful and emotionally arresting, the album is a collection of stories as much as songs - stories of the women and men who (sometimes literally) gave their lives to emancipate the working class.
