HADAWAY GA’AN CANNY: A Geordie folk song about the pandemic

 

A Geordie folk song about coronavirus - imagine saying that to someone a year ago!

But that's exactly what we've got thanks to a project by The Word in South Shields and local superstar Jen Stevens. The lyrics are inspired by the vast library of words donated by the public to the Word Bank of Lost Dialects exhibition, and aims to express the struggles we've all be dealing with throughout the pandemic.
