Jen Stevens - Dialect Song Commission
We have commissioned local singer/songwriter Jen Stevens to write 3 new songs using the bank of dialect words that had been collected during our Lost Dialect exhibition from 2016-2018.
The commission aims to celebrate the North East dialect and used the vast library of words donated by the public and gathered by us. In total over 2,400 words and phrases were collected and turned into the Word Bank of Lost Dialects.
Jen has used the Word Bank of Lost Dialects to write 3 new songs.
