We were commissioned by the Higgins Museum (Bedford) to produce a short film for the exhibition 'The Journey From Bunyan to the Brickworks' that ran from 6 April – 29 September 2019. 'The Bricks that Built a Community' ran continuously throughout the exhibition alongside two other films produced by the John Bunyan Museum. The film is built around the knowledge and experience of David Szymanski former Managing Director of Hanson Building Products and a man steeped in the history of Stewartby and its Brickworks. David's story is complemented by folk songs written by local songwriter Graeme Meek plus fascinating archive footage.

Pagan Harvest arises out of the English pastoral tradition. This mature partnership between a classical composer and arranger, a folk singer/lyricist and anchored by a driving bass results in powerful lyrics set within strong melodic frameworks.
