Taking Liberties On Common Ground: An Afternoon of Stories, Songs and Music

Sunday, 25 January 2009
14:30 to 16:30

The British Library STB, London NW1 2DB

An afternoon of stories, songs and music exploring the life and times of poet John Clare within the context of the Enclosures Act. We see how the imposed grid of ownership on the countryside, which brought wealth to the landowners and the farmers, disenfranchised the poor and began the shift of the working class from the countryside to the factories of the Industrial Revolution. Giving insights into the folk traditions of the 18th century, evoking landscape and class structure, the narrative is punctuated by excerpts from Clare’s poetry, and from ballads of the time. Performed by two of Britain’s leading artists of their genres. Storyteller Hugh Lupton is a master wordsmith; Chris Wood is the leading folk musician of his generation. Together they weave a beguiling magic.
