Hull’s Trawling Heritage in Song

Pete Clement is a songwriter living in landlocked Leicestershire. His songs aim to reflect the lives of ordinary working women and men – both now and in the past.

He comes from a long line of agricultural labourers and frequent visits to Hull have prompted him to write about those who sailed from the port to harvest the sea – very much like those who worked to win a harvest from the land.

He would be happy to collaborate with those who want to put their reminiscences of Hull’s fishermen, their families and their lives into words – and ultimately into song.            

Below are two of Peter’s songs for you to listen to. Each song has a short spoken introduction by Peter:
