An epic night of story and song, with storyteller Matthew Crampton and American folk musician Jeff Warner, Human Cargo gives voice to past exiles – emigrants, slaves, transportees – to cast fresh light on today’s migrations. The show draws on Matthew’s acclaimed book Human Cargo: Stories & Songs of Emigration, Slavery and Transportation.
This Liverpool performance partners with Support for Wigan Arrivals Project as part of the show’s Parallel Lives project. The group will be at The Phil on the night to talk about their work. Wherever it performs, Human Cargo includes local stories and links with local organisations. Through Parallel Lives, Matthew’s shows have now partnered with over 50 refugee support groups across Britain.
Storyteller and singer Matthew Crampton’s recent show The Transports won Five Stars from The Guardian. This collaboration unites Matthew with American traditional music legend Jeff Warner.
