The Cinderloo project and the story of the events of 1821 have been grabbing the attention of local media.  Last night (Sunday 17th February) Dawley band, Savannah were invited to perform three songs live on the Genevieve Tudor Folk Show on BBC Radio Shropshire.  This included their song “We’ve had enough” about the Cinderloo Uprising. Andrew Howe joined the show to talk about the project.

If you missed it, you can listen to the broadcast for a limited period here.




The Shropshire Star and Wrekin News have both featured the project in several articles in recent months.  You can read some of them via the links below:
