About the event

With Nancy Kerr, Findlay Napier, Hannah Martin, Greg Russell, Tim Yates and special guest Boff Whalley (Chumbawamba)

From the industrial revolution, universal suffrage and the slave trade through to CND, Rock against Racism and the Miners’ strike, songs are a common and integral factor in all the movements that have sought to instigate change.
 
Shake the Chains is an exciting new touring commission from celebrated UK contemporary folk singer songwriters that will explore the role songs have played in social change, resistance and protest. 
 
Featuring new material written exclusively for the project, as well as classic protest songs from around the world, this exceptional band of musicians will provide a unique evening of musical and social reflection. 
 
Shake the Chains is a commission from Folk by The Oak with support from Arts Council England, Help Musicians UK and Folk Alliance International.
 
It follows on from the critically acclaimed Sweet Liberties project that created new material in response to 800 years of the pursuit of democracy.
