‘My Ancestors’ is a Rich & Lou’s Loudhailer project – music, art, film and poetry telling of a journey to a new land; a story of love and loss, persecution and a new beginning, exploring the modern day experiences of new settlers today.

‘My Ancestors’ Project Concept and Lead – Rich & Lou Duffy-Howard

Originally influenced by folk tales of the small alpine Primula auricula and its 16th century journey to England with the Huguenot refugees. Click on the flowers below to discover the music which inspired the project.


Now that the first stage of our project is complete we are taking a break from this blog while we plan out the next stage. But there is lots going on over on our Loudhailer website, so please follow our blog there
