Songs of Our Town

Who are the unsung heroes of Doncaster? What are the stories and tales that we never hear?

Songs Of Our Town is an imaginative and creative collaboration between musician Michael Jenkinson and poet Ian Parks dedicated to recognising and celebrating exactly that.  

Throughout 2017, the two artists led workshops and performances concentrating on the lives, loves, and landscapes of Doncaster and the region.

Culminating in an album of the same title, the project involved participants across the borough in the process.

Songs Of Our Town was also performed at key events during 2017, including DNweeekeND.
