Cinderloo and a Wellington Yeomanry Button!

Wonderful performance at Wellington Library earlier today - a lovely chap called Piper brought along an original Wellington Yeomanry button found at the Cinderloo site in Telford. The Cinderloo Massacre, which took place in 1821, features in our Understories project with Jean Atkin.  Wow! These finds are very rare and we're thrilled that our project about Shropshire Folklore and people is unearthing all these treasures and further stories! You can view the video we have made for it HERE. There's also a great Cinderloo website where you can find out more.

We have a performance at Oswestry Library tomorrow, then Church Stretton Library on Friday 12th July. We're excited about what we'll find out next!

Understories performance at Wellington Library


Understories this week at Wellington and Oswestry Libraries

We've had such wonderful feedback for Understories - our collaboration with the fantastic Jean Atkin. It's made the project so rewarding for us and what we set out to do when we started to create the music and poetry inspired by the lesser known Shropshire Folklore and local characters.

We have two performances of Understories this coming week at Wellington Library - Telford & Wrekin Libraries and Oswestry Library. Both are free entry, with unreserved seating and supported by Arts Council England, details below. It would be great to see you!

Understories - Whalebone & Jean Atkin at Wellington Library Tues 11th June 10.30am
Understories - Whalebone & Jean Atkin at Oswestry Library Weds 12th June 1pm

Here's a taste of what to expect:

The Colour of the Sky - our new tune out today!

The Colour of the Sky, our new tune, is released today!

It's a guitar duet, quite reflective and played on nylon and steel strung guitars. It will only be available digitally via streaming and downloads on the major digital platforms and YouTube.


We hope you like it! If you're a Spotify user, please follow us and save the tune to your playlists, it really helps get our music out there :)
