Britain has a long and proud history of protest music, but today few mainstream artists are making protest music.  In 2012 singer-songwriter Quiet Loner set out to make a protest album.  The album Greedy Magicians has gone on to gather critical acclaim and been endorsed by Billy Bragg who called it ‘ a powerful rallying call’.

In this special performance Quiet Loner will play songs from the album and tell the story of how he made a contemporary protest album – how it was recorded over a single evening in a Salford church, what events inspired the songs and how the artwork was created using 19th century machines.

‘ a superb album evoking an authentic spirit of English folk’ – Penny Black music
