As the days darken, Tracks Darlington (supported by Creative Darlington) presents an evening of music inspired by tales from times past. On Friday 22nd November 2019, visit Darlington’s beautiful Crown Street Library and fill your ears and souls with songs of stagmen, golden apples, coiners, diamond rings and murder for love.
HARK! features live performances from:
- The Shining Levels: music inspired by the award-winning novel The Gallows Pole by Ben Myers. Haunting harmonies and beautiful folk fusion interspersed with readings from the book.
- Storm Chorus: All killer. Grave filler. Beguiling ballads about murder, enduring love and unbearable heartbreak vibrate and pulse with visceral humanity and truth.
- Nel Unlit: creating music that is a celebration of storytelling, their concept album ‘Wake for the Dreaming’ is based on the graphic novel ‘World’s End’ by Neil Gaiman. Ethereal, delightfully off-kilter, and mesmerising.
Plus readings from local authors
Each set will be preceded by extracts that relate to the music, read by Bob Fischer (author, musician, playwright and BBC Tees presenter) and plus Tracey Iceton, (author of The Celtic Colours Trilogy and multi-award-winning short-story writer).
The event will be compered by writer and musician Francoise Harvey. Plus, there’ll be a pop-up bar provided by Saints Row Brewing Co.
