Theatre Groups


I worked with Banner Theatre several times during these years, writing songs for them such as "Blood on the Coal", "Concrete" and "Hunger Strike". Banner's methods (like my own)are to do a series of interviews with people before writing the songs which give those people a voice. This method is both informative and inspiring.

Blood on the Coal

I also was musical director for two of their shows, also for another Birmingham based Theatre Group – 'Telling Tales' whose album of songs I mixed and recorded.

Other albums I helped to produce were 'Songs from the Printworkers Strike' and 'Songs of the Miner's Wives'.
