now playing: Radio Ballads: The Ballad of the Big Ships

Ballad of the Big Ships

Thinking about the nature of work, of how work forms community and is formed by it, and what happens when both of these part of life face change? The voices of the people who've lived that in the ship building industries along the Clyde and the Tyne form the substance of this recording, their voices, and the songs those voices inspired. It is a powerful project, much to think on whatever your line of work. Songwriters include Jez Lowe, Karine Polwart, and John Tams. This is part of the BBC2 radio Ballads series
