Mining Themed CD Released

Congratulations to Alex Caton (http://alexcaton.com/) on the release of her new Album, “Never Take a Daisy Down a Mine” inspired by a visit to the Apedale Heritage Centre. It combines Appalachian and Irish Folk with her family history in the North Staffordshire mining industry, resulting in an Album of music and poetry about mining. Alex launched a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund the new album, which not only hit the target, it achieves a second goal of funding travel expenses to come and promote the Album in here England.
