The Pitmen Poets features four of  North East England’s leading champions of its musical heritage:

Ex-Lindisfarne singer and songwriter Billy Mitchell, renowned singer and instrumentalist Bob Fox, leading exponent of Tyneside song Benny Graham, and much-covered Durham songwriter Jez Lowe individually and collectively celebrating the triumphs, tragedy, humour and hard times of North-East England's coal mining tradition in an evening of music, song and spoken word, illustrated by atmospheric archive photography.


“An epic journey through the life and times of the people who made their living in the Northumberland and Durham coalfields. What a memorable night!”


Having seen my paintings and prints of the North East's coal mining community, Billy Mitchell suggested using  my paintings as part of their stage backdrop and very kindly arranged for me to exhibit my work at four North East venues . I am very proud to be able to do so - My profound thanks to The Pitmen Poets !


The venues are as follows :-


Sunday February 5th   Durham Gala Theatre

Friday February 10th    Whitley Bay Playhouse

Saturday February 18th    Hexham Queen's Hall

Sunday February 19th    Sage, Gateshead


You will be able to view and buy original paintings and limited edition signed fine art prints at each Pitmen Poets venue.
