The London Lubbers are an occasional shanty group, comprising Jan North, Matthew Crampton and Chris Hayes.
Our latest show is HUMAN CARGO: songs & stories of trafficking & transportation- a words & music exploration of slavery, emigration, the Highland Clearances and convict transportation. We link stories & first-hand accounts from the 18th & 19th centuries with songs, mainly from the period, some more modern. A mix of TED-style lecture, close harmony concert and rousing singalong, it’s an unusual approach to the critical issue of refugees today. And it’s proving popular...
… we’ve spent the summer touring Human Cargo around festivals. Recently we were in the studio recording the show, and hope to release a CD soon.
