Featuring Chamber to the Grave by Jim Carey and traditional folk tunes

 

At a wake in a pub, a storyteller fondly remembers Cornish miner, Joe. Soon, a deeper story emerges about friendship, mischief and forces more powerful than man.

 

A haunting yet playful story told through music and song inspired by folklore, home, mining, memories, and mischief. The audience is warmly invited to join in, sing or play along – bring an instrument or just listen and enjoy the story.

 

Produced by Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra in association with Tête à Tête and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.

 

Inspired by conversations at Geevor Tin Mine, Fault Lines has been generously supported by Gillian Emerson as part of the BSO’s biennial Cornwall residency.
