Music Hall battles Vaudeville

Human Cargo is a serious show. Except the start of the second half, when Jeff Warner and I sing choruses from British music hall and American vaudeville. Such songs, we explain, would have been sung on the emigration boats. Filmed at Kings Place, London, in June 2018, this short video captures the audience joy, especially when Jeff gets out his spoons and his jigdoll. NB the sound’s rough as we perform this section ‘front of curtain’, without the PA.
