We welcome the powerhouse that is Jennifer Reid.
“Jennifer as a performer and writer breathes life back into these fascinating songs that vividly describe the tumultuous environment of the industrial north west. Taking their subject matter from the urban street and people the ballad effectively bridges the gap between folk and pop music as we know it today.” – Jeremy Deller, artist
“Jenn’s extensive research to unearth hidden ballads is impressive. To then hear her pure strong voice singing them is a joy indeed. Everyone at the Working Class Movement Library is delighted to be associated with her.” – Lynette Cawthra, Working Class Movement Library
Jennifer performs Lancashire dialect work song and Manchester broadside ballads to reintroduce audiences to their industrial heritage.
