While I’ve had every spare second taken up with We Shall Overcome, the new album and plotting #XmasNo1 with the miners, Tony Peter Wright has been hard at it behind the scenes putting together May Day Festival of Solidarity 2017.
The festival was Tony’s dream from the start, and together we made it reality when we staged a day of music, poetry and speeches at The Polish Club in Barnsley on May 1st this year featuring some of the finest political voices around. Next year we plan to make a full weekend of it and the bill is rapidly coming together thanks to Tony’s hard work and commitment.
So far confirmed are:
Thee Faction, Robb Johnson, The Wimmins Institute, Lily Gaskell, Interrobang, Chris T-T, Efa Supertramp, Claire Mooney, Left Ahead, Lilith Ai, Dave Burland, Grigio, Attila The Stockbroker, The Hurriers, Burning Ferns and myself.
Tickets will go on sale soon with full weekend or day split versions available.
More details as they come in, but mark it in your diaries- this will be a classic.
