Sam Barrett

Sam Barrett is a folk singer who performs local folk songs and tales. He aims to highlight key aspects of the social and economic history of Yorkshire through participatory folk song. The lives and stories of people that worked in textiles, coal, fishing and farming are brought to life using call and response and chorus type songs that tell their stories.

The workshop is fully interactive and singing focused using work songs, shanties and narrative folk song to educate children of key stage 2 age about Yorkshire industries with particular focus on the industrial revolution. A perfect way to link topic work with music!
