Images from the ‘Lost Voices of the North-East’ Event

The Durham Dragon

Here are some photos from last weekend’s ‘Lost Voices of the North-East’ Event which took place in Durham University’s music department on Palace Green, as part of the University’s ‘Being Human’ Festival of the Humanities. The event included performances of North Yorkshire’s spooky Lyke-Wake Dirge, County Durham’s famous ‘Ballad of the Lampton Worm’, the so-called ‘Durham Cantata’, and a variety of early music from the North-East region and elsewhere.

Please send us your own photos & videos from the event! Email: mark.chambers@durham.ac.uk.
