Sandra Kerr & John Faulkner, best known for the music and songs of the much loved Bagpuss TV shows, come together after 45 years to present an evening of new and old music, both traditional & self-penned material - some of a distinctly political nature. Both have long and distinguished careers in folk music, having been mentored by Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger in the Critics Group through the 1960s and 1970s. Since then, John has worked with the best in Irish traditional music, appearing on over fifteen albums (four of which he either produced or co-produced), and having huge success with his song about Nelson Mandela 'Lion in a Cage' while working with De Danaan. Sandra, an EFDSS gold badge holder, is widely acclaimed for her work with Sisters Unlimited, as a feminist song-writer of note, as a vocal trainer and folk choir director, and for her work with young musicians as a lecturer on the Newcastle Folk Degree.
From Here Records is the label of Stick In The Wheel. It exists to further the reach of traditional and roots music that runs deep throughout the cultures of this country.
