Whistling Past the Graveyard


Presented by Leah Cotterell and Narelle McCoy

Together we can stare down the final mystery with a song on our lips!

In ‘Whistling Past the Graveyard’ Doctor Leah Cotterell and Mistress Narelle McCoy share stories from their written memoirs and academic research, shining a light on what matters to us about death, dying and funerals – from the strange and sad to the sublime and uplifting.

Beautiful music is supplied by the world-class talent of guitarist Jamie Clark in company with the finest of fiddlers.

And the musical materials are as eclectic as the subject matter, ranging from classical and folk song to emblematic pop and, of course, together we all sing ‘Amazing Grace’.
