A TALE OF EXILE & MIGRATION

Join some of Britain’s leading folk musicians for a timely re-telling of Peter Bellamy’s legendary folk ballads The Transports. Here is a rare chance to see BBC award winners The Young’uns, Faustus, Nancy Kerr and members of Bellowhead together on stage at Exeter Phoenix.

This new production combines The Transports’ incredible music with spell-binding story-telling.

At a time when migration makes headlines daily, this tale of past migration shows how little has changed in the global movement of desperate people. The accompanying project Parallel Lives charts – town by town – those who once left Britain with those who have recently arrived.
