The 2 CD - 48 song set comes with a 76 page book.
“In good times and in bad, music is a reflection of the highlights of life,” says CD producer Jack Wright.
Coal mining music provides a record of the intense, life-changing experiences miners and their families have. “It is just such a hard way of life that much of the music is very depressing,” Wright said.
The themes for the majority of the songs are tragic because so many people have lost their lives in mining over the years, Wright said. Fewer die or are injured now, but the evolution of coal mining is an incredible story to tell.
“I want people to see the complex and beautiful history of coal mining. To see how families have struggled to make a living and been willing to take on jobs and situations that are very difficult, in order to survive,” Wright said.(LINK)
