First up for 2023 we welcome Jennifer Reid.

Jennifer Reid is a performer of Victorian broadside ballads and nineteenth century Lancashire dialect work song, the working classes made music as a provocation and this is a tradition Jennifer continues.
Her work has taken her to Venice, Croatia, New York and lately Bangladesh, where she tested the idea that the Industrial Revolution never stopped, it just moved to Dhaka.
Jennifer spoke at the first ethnomusicography conference on the Indian sub-continent about her research into Bangladeshi and Mancunian weaving songs. Jennifer researches ballads and applies them to modern life.
