Poppyland songs is a heart warming, musical investigation into the history of ordinary people living along a short stretch of cliff in North Norfolk.
Inspired by journals belonging to her great great aunt Kit Hood that were found in the house where Bertie grew up in Sidestrand, North Norfolk.
They document the lives of Kit’s neighbours over 100 years ago, most of whom were farmers and labourers, people who were otherwise invisible and wouldn’t ever make it into history books.
Bertie has embarked on a journey celebrating the lives and telling the stories of those who’ve lived and died in Poppyland. Through song and storytelling she explores life past and present on a cliff edge in North Norfolk.
