Broadside Ballads

This event was originally scheduled for Thu 21 May 2020 but has been rescheduled to Sun 14 Mar 2021 due to COVID-19. Tickets bought for the original date remain valid.

Three of the UK’s most innovative, award-winning folk artists reinvent a collection of broadsides – daily song sheets sold for pence – giving a rare insight into Britain’s history. Delving into the collection at the Bodleian Libraries and beyond, Lisa Knapp, Marry Waterson and Nathaniel Mann lead a five-piece band, bringing broadside ballads to life for a new generation.
