Human Cargo is an epic night of story and song, featuring two masters of the craft.
Storyteller and singer Matthew Crampton’s recent show The Transports won Five Stars from The Guardian, and now returns with a new adaptation of his acclaimed book Human Cargo: Stories & Songs of Emigration, Slavery and Transportation.
An inspired collaboration unites Matthew with American traditional music legend Jeff Warner. Together, they cast fresh light on human migration, giving voice to those actually aboard the slave ships and emigrant boats and, crucially, framing today’s hot topic with history and humanity.
Each performance also features stories researched locally, as part of the Parallel Lives project. Expect a rich and entertaining evening.
