“Mike Turnbull is a singer-songwriter from the Lake District, UK whose main instruments are tenor guitar & octave mandola. Their sound coupled with the sources of his songs suggests Seth Lakeman and, in truth, that isn’t a bad comparison. He certainly has the same drive and energy.”

The Price of Land is a drama production written by South Lakes poet and writer Geoff Cox as a response to the Lake District being awarded UNESCO World Heritage status. Tellingly, the award documentation entirely failed to mention the working people of Cumbria whose efforts have resulted in the Lake District landscapes we see today. Directed by the award-winning Kevin Dyer, the production ranges widely across the Cumbrian landscape, brilliantly captured in a shifting projection of stills and film, and set against a location-made soundtrack composed by Barrow born sound artist Damian Rose.
The verse-drama gives a voice to these forgotten people from 500 years of Cumbrian history, allowing nine characters, miners, quarry workers, peat cuttters, charcoal burners and farmers etc. to tell the stories of their lives and their industries. From the earliest experiences of immigrant copper miners in the time of Queen Elizabeth 1st, to the challenges facing modern day upland farmers, these are stories that remind us that our experience of living and working in the rural North today has its roots in a shared and often uncompromising history. The performances at Stainton is supported by the Lake District National Park Authority and The Farmer Network. Tickets are £10 from https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/the-price-of-land-tickets-91529736907
