Mr Lud’s Song

This compilation CD of traditional and modern Luddite music has a great line-up of artists. It includes existing recordings, songs from the musical shows that toured in 2012 and other new compositions inspired by the 200th anniversary. The title comes from an intercepted letter from a Yorkshire weaver to his brother in 1812: ‘We received him as a friend from you and enjoyed ourselves over a pot or two of beer, and he read us Mr Lud’s Song’. It is the only collection of such Luddite material ever assembled and is no doubt destined to become a collector’s item.
