Stolen from God by Reg Meuross
Reg Meuross presents Stolen From God, his folk song cycle about the transatlantic slave trade with Suntou Susso and Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne and narration from Tim Walker
“If ever there was evidence that music can be used to speak truth to power, then this album will in time sit as testament to that fact." Ifi Umoren - Fatea
The live show, which features a narration on the historical background to each song, was previewed during last year’s Black History Month. Featuring vocals from all three musicians, alongside incredible instrumentation, it received a tremendous reception at shows in Bristol, London and Manchester.
“Reg Meuross is the ideal song writer to unpick the South West’s complex Slavery story. A subject that needs his clear sighted way with words…single of the year” - Tim Martin, FATEA.
Reg Meuross’s belief that folk songs provide a rapid and accessible route into history and its current relevance stood him in good stead when it came to tackling the history of the transatlantic slave trade in story and song. He unearthed both incredible tales and uncomfortable truths - now brought fully to life with this enlightening live performance.
