Songs of the Shipyard

6:00 pm


Born in 1886, Thomas Carnduff did many unskilled jobs in his life including working in the Belfast shipyard, which provided inspiration for his many poems and earned him the nickname, The Shipyard Poet. His lyrical writing reflects his love of Belfast and its people.

Musician Peacock Angell draws the audience into the world of working-class Northern Irish shipyard poet and dramatist Thomas Carnduff performing original musical settings of his poems interwoven with fascinating biographical excerpts from early 20th century Belfast.

Violinist/singer Ruth Angell brings her spellbinding voice, and Sid Peacock his dextrous acoustic guitar, to his truly captivating mix of music, poetry and history. ‘Wildly creative’ – Independent on Sunday.
