About the Exhibition

The Waterson Family of Hull has been recognised for many years as one of the city’s proudest and most treasured cultural and musical exports. From the 1950s onwards they blazed a trail across the UK folk music scene as ambassadors and authentic interpreters of the traditional music of England and Ireland, and in particular the music of Yorkshire.

In collaboration with the City of Hull we will be mounting an exhibition celebrating the lives and achievements of the Watersons through their music and professional lives as well as their unique characters. This multimedia exhibition will combine music, video, interviews, photography and ephemera to show the rich history and impact of this family both locally and abroad.

The exhibition will take place in Hull in the autumn of 2017. For updates please like us on Facebook and subscribe to our mailing list.
