Original Song

Words by Tanya Brittain. Music by Tanya Brittain and Sam Kelly.

The ‘red men’ were the iron ore miners of Cleator Moor in Cumbria. Historically, the town was based around the iron works industry and was served in this capacity by two railways and several iron ore mines. The colour of the iron ore made the miners skin turn red.
