Originally written for the Yorkshire folk choir Baccapella, Follow the Fleece tells the story of Dales sheep farming and how Bradford became world famous in the woollen industry. From mediaeval times through the industrial revolution to present day, with historical characters from Shakespeare to Titus Salt, the tale is told through song and narrative.
Featuring some familiar songs alongside original material, the flavour of Follow the Fleece is folk music – ‘of the people’ – from Greensleeves to Springsteen.
Grassington Players have expanded and added drama to the piece calling upon the talents of the dales theatrical community with a cast of 30+ singers, actors and musicians.
