SPEAKERS AND PERFORMERS: Dr Andrew Heath, History Department, Pete David, Michael J Tinker, Greg Davies. Featuring a performance from The Payroll Union & more.

Building on the collaboration between the critically-acclaimed Americana band The Payroll Union and the Sheffield History Department, this event brings together historians and musicians to consider how we tell stories about the past. Andrew Heath (Dept. of History) and Pete David will be joined by musicians to talk about how they’ve used research to develop their art. The panel talk and Q&A will be followed by a full performance of the Faith and Fear in Philadelphia project, including a set of new material from The Payroll Union, a creative interpretation of direct primary sources from the period, and more!
