Stolen From God

Slave trade song cycle from Reg Meuross with Suntou Susso and Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne

Through folk song and story, Reg, Suntou and Cohen tackle the history of the transatlantic slave trade in story and song, joined by Matthew Bannister and poet Jenny Mitchell.

Reg Meuross tackles the history of the transatlantic slave trade, unearthing both incredible tales and uncomfortable truths – now brought fully to life with this stunning song cycle joined by kora master Suntou Susso and concertina wizard Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne alongside narration delivered by Folk On Foot/BBC Radio 4’s Matthew Bannister. The night will be opened by multi award winning poet Jenny Mitchell (Resurrection of a Black Man)

This event will last approximately 2 hours including an interval.


‘…never has he made a more important or more deeply considered and researched album’
Iain Anderson, BBC Radio Scotland 

‘Reg Meuros has written a masterpiece and the musicians working with him on this are simply amazing. He couldn’t have made a better choice.’
Mike Harding 

‘A stunning and important work of historical research set to some of the best folk tunes you’ll hear this year’
Tim Martin – Americana UK 

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘An album which both moves and challenges the listener and a reminder that with the current government and media attacks on Black Lives Matter we are still having to fight the ideology which gave rise to the trade depicted in these songs.’
Steve Johnson – Morning Star
