A performance at Newport’s Cwtsh Arts Centre that will feature slides and images from the People’s History Museum’s collection and highlighting significant historical events that led to the right to vote has now been rescheduled for September 8.
People’s History Museum ‘Songwriter in Residence’ Matt Hill whose work as ‘Quiet Loner’ has garnered rave reviews and a Glastonbury appearance, will bring the Battle for the Ballot highlighting the story of the vote and how the democratic process evolved.
Matt was appointed to this coveted role earlier this year and set about creating original musical works inspired by the museum’s collections, all of which explore the history of working people in Britain.
Quiet Loner’s music is inspired by the storytelling traditions of American Folk and country music but with a distinctly British lyrical bite. His third album Greedy Magicians was both personal and political and led to his being invited by Billy Bragg to perform at the 2013 Glastonbury Festival.
The Battle for the Ballot was to originally be performed at the Cwtsh Arts Centre, Newport on July 1, but due to its clash with scheduled Wales Euro match will now take place on September 8. To find out more about Quiet Loner visit www.quietloner.com.
