I missed this thread when it appeared last October.

We're now well into the project, with a whole pile of fresh material arranged, rehearsed and ready to record in April. As Henry mentioned, several of the songs are sourced from Alison Morgan's fascinating book, 'Ballads and Songs of Peterloo'.

Live dates start in June, and we will be taking the performance to several festivals including Sidmouth, Broadstairs, Whitby and Hartlepool. We'll also be putting on a Manchester show at Central Library on August 1st, and in London at Cecil Sharp House on October 9th.
