RADICALS – The Chartist Women of Sheffield, Cemetery Sessions present…

Jennifer Reid
The working classes made music as a provocation and this is a tradition that Jennifer Reid continues, performing 19thC Lancashire dialect work songs, Manchester broadside ballads and clog steps. Jennifer played Barb in Shane Meadows’ critically acclaimed period drama The Gallows Pole on the BBC and has recently supported Pulp and John Cooper Clarke, latterly for Chanel’s prestigious Metiers d’Art show. She works across academia, folk performance, heritage consultation and media to bring industrial history back to the people. www.jenniferballads.com.

Jim Ghedi
Jim hails from Sheffield and although clearly well versed in the history of folk music, he stands out as a potential torch bearer for a new generation of respectful yet experimental performers. As his music develops away from his previous records ‘A Hymn for Ancient Land’ (2018) & ‘In the Furrows of Common Place’ (2021) released on Basin Rock record label and his collaborative duo records with welsh guitarist Toby Hay released on Topic Records (2023), his sound emulates a more brooding, dark and electronic world which is mirrored in his piercing lyrics and singing. Here he draws from social observations, contemporary songwriting, historical & traditional material. Over the years performing headline tours and festivals across the UK & Ireland as well as supporting & touring with bands such as Lankum, Stick in the Wheel, Richard Dawson, Martin Carthy, Shirley Collins.

£15.00  plus booking fee.
