A unique experience exploring stories around migration through music. When pioneers from the British isles came to the Appalachian Mountains, they brought with them, in their invisible baggage “The Old Country” which took on a new life amidst the new land into what we recognise today as country music.

Join award-winning Little Bulb as they weave a tapestry both historical and fantastical in an unforgettable evening of story and song. Told with sumptuous three-part harmonies and a foot stomping five-piece string band, we invite you on a journey of musical migration to the birth of what we now call “Country Music”.

“Boundlessly enthusiastic, insanely optimistic, and inexpressibly charming” – The Guardian on Little Bulb

Please note that there will be a bar and refreshments available at this performance and we will be joined by special guests including John Crabtree, OBE, the Lord-Lieutenant of the West Midlands and The Worshipful the Mayor of Sandwell, Councillor Dr Ann Jaron.
