Chants for Socialists – Darren Hayman brings life to William Morris

Share

TUC Library saw Darren Hayman play his new album Chants for Socialists at the Union Chapel on Saturday 24th January. Darren (formerly of John Peal favourite Hefner) having discovered Chants for Socialists, a pamphlet written by William Morris, at the William Morris Gallery in Walthemstow, wrote an album of music to accompany it. Darren is currently touring the album. The TUC Library bought the record on red vinyl.

We found the following music sheet from 1925 in our collection of the song Darren finished  his gig on, No Master. (Seems like G W Crawford had a go pre 1925).
