Working Songs

You are invited to a night out at the Newport Bowls Club where the Newport Fiddle & Folk Club will present an evening of songs about working life. Whether your workplace is the coal mine, the office, the railway or the street, work is a big part of life and there are many songs about it. Work songs go back to the days of sailing ships, when sailors used shanties to keep a co-ordinated rhythm while lifting sails or anchors. We use work songs to relieve boredom, to tell stories or to reflect on the impact of work on our lives.
