I will be performing ‘Three Acres And A Cow – A History Of Land Rights And Protest In Folk Song And Story’ with Rachel Rose Reid at the Cock & Bull Festival in Wiltshire on 26th July after lunchtime around the 2pm mark.
Have a little peek at their website by clicking on the poster … there is loads of great stuff going on including some brilliant friends of mine such as Nick Hart, Pete The Temp, Whiskey Moonface and a host of others. The festival is a fundraiser for a really great farm charity which connects young people from the city with food and the countryside.
I think we are on Sunday afternoon in the Martyrs’ Marquee but this may change so do check the schedule if you are planning on heading down.
This festival is a must for any one interested in music and politics. The Tolpuddle Martyrs’ were given hugely cruel sentences in the 1830’s for setting up an early union to campaign for agricultural labourers’ wages – their sentences were eventually overturned after massive nationwide outrage, laying foundations for all people campaigning for a fairer and more equal society ever since.
