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.
