The Pitmen Poets

The Pitmen Poets


From Billy Elliot to Close the Coalhouse Door, When the Boat Comes In to The Pitmen Painters, now hear the songs and stories of the Pitmen Poets.

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 celebrate the triumphs, tragedy, humour and hard times of the North East's coal mining tradition in an evening of music, song and spoken word, illustrated by atmospheric archive photography.
