At a wake in a pub, a storyteller fondly remembers Cornish miner, Joe. Soon, a deeper story emerges about friendship, mischief and forces more powerful than man.

A haunting yet playful story told through music and song inspired by folklore, home, mining, memories, and mischief. The audience is warmly invited to join in, sing or play along – bring an instrument or just listen and enjoy the story.

Featuring Chamber to the Grave by Jim Carey and traditional folk tunes
