“Do not miss” Songlines

An epic night of story and song, featuring two masters of the craft. Storyteller and singer Matthew Crampton’s recent show The Transports won Five Stars from The Guardian. Now he returns with a new adaptation of his acclaimed book Human Cargo: Stories & Songs of Emigration, Slavery and Transportation.

An inspired collaboration unites Matthew with American traditional music legend Jeff Warner. Together, they cast fresh light on human migration, giving voice to those actually aboard the slave ships and emigrant boats and, crucially, framing today’s defining issue with history and humanity. Expect a rich and entertaining evening.

This London performance includes stories researched locally. Also, as part of the Parallel Lives project, we are delighted to partner once again with the Refugee Council, who will be present at Kings Place to talk about their work.

We're honoured too to link the show with UK Refugee Week.
