WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Hannah and her company are collecting stories - stories from people just getting by, people who don't think they're important, anyone who will stop and talk to them. Bored of the media selling our stories back to us, they are mixing up the old idea of the ballad by sharing stories and passing them on with a modern form of righteous storytelling: punk music. Three chords, rhyming couplets, lots of noise. Songs from the market place, from the street, of romance, graft, boredom, everyday defeat. Hannah will be working with Sean Arnold, a Dundee-based punk musician, best known as part of Scottish Emo band Bonehouse, and Keir Cooper, a London-based jazz punk musician who'll be on drums.

Upstairs. Double bill with Rahimullah & Sons
