The Pitmen Poets


From Billy Elliot to Auf Weidersehn Pet from When The Boat Comes In to The Likely Lads, Now Be Enthralled And Entertained By The Pitmen Poets

Join The Pitmen Poets For A Night of Songs And Stories Laced With North East Humour And Humanity.

The Pitmen Poets features four of the region’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 triumphs, tragedy, humour and hard times of North-East England’s coal mining tradition in an evening of music, song and spoken word.

“Whoever's idea it was to bring these four together for a show should be awarded a gold medal for services to music.”

“A great evening of stories and wonderful voices.”

“Sheer Utter Brilliance”
