Tickets for this event go on sale at 9am on Friday 8 December

Adapted from Matthew Crampton’s recent book ‘Human Cargo: Stories & Songs of Emigration, Slavery and Transportation’, singer and storyteller Crampton, whose previous show ‘The Transports’ won a five star review in The Guardian, joins forces with acclaimed song collector and musician/singer Jeff Warner, a legend of old-time traditional music who has been called “the best folk singer in America”, for an epic night focusing on the history of human migration. Linking the past to the present, and the universal to the local and particular through specially researched case studies from Bristol and beyond, this will be a deeply moving and intense exploration of one of the most important subjects in all history, and an essential background to any understanding of the contemporary refugee crisis.

 ‘Matthew Crampton has taken a fresh look at the worlds of slavery and emigration.’ CERYS MATTHEWS
