Shake The Chains

"From the industrial revolution, universal suffrage and the slave trade through to CND, Rock against Racism and the Miners' strike, songs are a common and integral factor in all the movements that have sought to instigate change."

The 2017 line-up for Folk by the Oak features Nancy Kerr, Findlay Napier, Hannah Martin, Greg Russell and Tim Yates.
