Three Acres And A Cow, A History Of Land Rights And Protest In Folk Song And Story - Gal Gael
'Three Acres And A Cow' connects the Norman Conquest and Peasants’ Revolt with current issues like fracking, the housing crisis and land reform movement via the Enclosures, 'English'* Civil War, Highland Clearances, Irish Land League and Industrial Revolution, drawing a compelling narrative through the radical people’s history of Britain in folk song, stories and poems.
Part TED talk, part history lecture, part folk club sing-a-long, part poetry slam, part storytelling session… Come and share in these tales as they have been shared for generations.
Featuring Rachel Rose Reid, Naomi Wilkins and Robin Grey, see http://threeacresandacow.co.uk/ for more information.
Food from 6-7pm - show starts at 7pm @ Gal Gael - 15 Fairley St, Govan, Glasgow, Glasgow, South Lanarkshire G51 2TS
Please note - this show is largely focused on the English history. We have been invited to perform in Glasgow to showcase the format and spirit of the show to Scottish musicians and other performers so we can explore devising a Scottish focused work.
*of course it wasn't an 'English' civil war as loads of Scots and Welsh fought... more of that in the show!
