Haalin’ the Lines celebrates the heritage and history of
Newbiggin-by-the-Sea through the production of songs
and oral histories gathered from the Newbiggin Genealogy
Bringing together a partnership including local musicians, choir members and performers, the project celebrates real life historical events which paint a picture of the way of life for the
mining and fishing communities in the town. Through the Newbiggin Genealogy project the local
community has been actively involved in developing the songs which have been performed at a
series of events across South East Northumberland.
