Dreadful Memories (1988)

About the Film

Gunning suffered a life of bitter poverty which became the fuel for dozens of moving songs about working people, the mines, and the great coal strikes of the twenties and thirties. Gunning's a cappella roots music is intercut throughout the interviews and archival footage. A 1988 film by Mimi Pickering, available from Appalshop on DVD.
