68. MUSICAL - LONDON LABOUR, LONDON POOR: VOICES OF THE EAST END
Rachel Dawick
Thursday 27th June 19:30 (60 Min)
Evelyn Partners Spiegeltent
Musical Performance - Folk musician and songwriter Rachel Dawick takes us on a voyage of discovery into the lives of the working class in East London during the 1840s. Her music draws on Henry Mayhew's London Labour and the London Poor, a four volume compendium containing hundreds of interviews with the people of Victorian London. These voices from the past are now captured in song, offering a unique window into the lives of the people themselves - the mudlark, the queen's rat catcher, the ballast wives of London, and many more.
