Stolen from God

About this event

Slave trade song cycle from Reg Meuross with Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne.

Singer-songwriter Reg Meuross presents his stunning song cycle Stolen from God, with concertina wizard Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne.

The live show, which features a narration on the historical background to each song, was previewed during last year’s Black History Month. Featuring vocals from both musicians, alongside incredibleinstrumentation, it received a tremendous reception at shows in Bristol, London and Manchester.

“Reg Meuross is the ideal songwriter to unpick the South West’s complex Slavery story. A subject that needs his clear sighted way with words… single of the year” ~ Tim Martin, FATEA

Reg Meuross’s belief that folk songs provide a rapid and accessible route into history and its current relevance stood him in good stead when it came to tackling the history of the transatlantic slave trade in story and song.

He unearthed both incredible tales and uncomfortable truths – now brought fully to life with this enlightening live performance.

“Reg Meuros has written a masterpiece and the musicians working with him on this are simply amazing. He couldn’t have made a better choice.” ~ Mike Harding

“A stunning and important work of historical research set to some of the best folk tunes you’ll hear this year” ~ Tim Martin, Americana UK

Please note, Suntou Susso – featured in the brochure, is no longer able to participate in the concert.
