The 'Joseph Mather's Offspring' concert is a celebration of 200 yeas of Sheffield songwriters. Mather was a ferocious critic of the factory owners in his day and wrote scathing political diatribes against them. Our concert features local songwriters and will include one or two of Mather's songs as a pinch of seasoning!
