Sounds From The Other City

Jennifer Reid

Jennifer Reid is a performer of 19th Century Industrial Revolution broadside ballads and Lancashire Dialect work song. Her research and performances have taken her around the world, including, most recently, Bangladesh where she’s investigating the work songs and their similarity to those which were sung by those in Lancashire when the work and the conditions were analogous. A recording from her appearance at the Venice Biennale, at the invitation of Jeremy Deller will be released soon and a cd ‘Gradely Manchester’ is still available.
