The Pitmen Poets

Presented by Billy Mitchell
Members of Pitmen Poets are sitting on stage playing various instruments. There is a screen behind them with several people singing.

The Pitmen Poets perform at The Varieties with a night of songs and stories laced with North East humour and humanity.

Lindisfarne singer and songwriter Billy Mitchell, Warhorse Songman Bob Fox, Master of Tyneside song Benny Graham, and award-winning songwriter Jez Lowe.

Whoever’s idea it was to bring these four together for a show should be awarded a gold medal for services to music
