A unique concert celebrating the songs and culture of North East England's Coal Mining tradition, bringing together four of the region's leading champions of it's musical heritage - it's triumphs and tragedies, it's humour and hard times. With archive footage and photographs, this is a journey through the centuries of a once-great industry, by way of the songs that saw it thrive and dominate, to those that saw it's demise and the resulting aftermath. Featuring - for the first time together on one stage - ex-Lindisfarne singer and writer Billy Mitchell, renowned singer and instrumentalist Bob Fox, leading exponent of Tyneside song Benny Graham, and much-covered Durham songwriter Jez Lowe - individually and collectively.
