Tayo Aluko

May 20 @ 7:30 pm

Tayo Aluko & Friends will be at Swanland Village Hall on Sat, April 28, (tickets 01482 634863) and North Dalton Village Hall on Sun, May 20, at 7.30pm (tickets 01377 217523) with Call Mr Robeson – a Life with Songs. Paul Robeson is a world-famous actor, singer and civil rights campaigner. When he gets too radical and outspoken for the establishment’s liking, he is branded a traitor to his country, is harassed, and denied opportunities to perform or travel. This roller-coaster journey through Robeson’s remarkable life highlights how his political activism led many to describe him as the forerunner of the civil rights movement. It features some famous songs (including a dramatic rendition of Ol’ Man River), speeches, and a spectacularly defiant testimony to the Senate House Un-American Activities Committee.
