For this year’s Record Store Day, Field Music will release Binding Time, a suite of new songs inspired by the formation of the Durham Miners’ Association and performed with musicians from the NASUWT Riverside band.

Across the album we have songs that tell tales of miner’s being blacklisted for unionising, that touch on the barbarism of the yearly bond, where mostly-illiterate miners annually signed themselves into bondage for fear of being without work, and portraits of the hated 3rd Marquis of Londonderry, Charles Vane, who built Seaham Harbour to avoid paying keelmen on the River Wear, and Thomas Hepburn, whose selfless efforts to unionise his fellow miners in the 1820s and 30s left him destitute.”

This new collection completes a tryptic of Field Music releases with a socio-historical theme, following 2015’s Music for Drifters - written as a live accompaniment to John Grierson’s pioneering documentary - and 2021’s Making a New World, which examined the social and technological aftermath of the First World War.
