Stolen From God – Slave trade song cycle from Reg Meuross with Suntou Susso and Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne

Reg Meuross tackles the history of England’s involvement in the transatlantic slave trade, unearthing both incredible tales and uncomfortable truths – now brought fully to life with this stunning song cycle joined by kora master Suntou Susso and concertina wizard Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne alongside narration on the background to each song.

The live show has received a tremendous reception at shows and festivals across the country.

“If ever there was evidence that music can be used to speak truth to power, then this album will in time sit as testament to that fact. From a British man of colour, a personal thanks must go to Reg Meuross and his team for taking on this subject matter.” Ifi Umoren – FATEA

“…never has he made a more important or more deeply considered and researched album”  Iain Anderson, BBC Radio Scotland

“…ambitious, often unsettling” The Guardian

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “…both moves and challenges the listener” Steve Johnson – Morning Star

“… turns an unflinching eye on the toxic legacy of the transatlantic slave trade” Mike Davies for Folk Radio UK

“Reg Meuross has written a masterpiece and the musicians working with him on this are simply amazing.” Mike Harding

“A stunning and important work of historical research set to some of the best folk tunes you’ll hear this year” Tim Martin – Americana UK

Book a table for pre-concert dining

Acapela Studio provides pre-concert dining between 6.00pm and 7.30pm from our wood burning pizza oven. To view the current menu visit here.

Please purchase your concert tickets first before booking a table. We will not accept any table bookings that do not have a corresponding ticket purchase.

Then return to the event page to book your table, by selecting the date of your event, number of diners and time you require table. The times shown are the only vacancies left.  Please complete your email and phone number as this is required to ensure your table is allocated. You will receive confirmation of your booking by email and text.

If on the date you have chosen no tables are available - no times will be shown and the booking system will revert you back to todays date - PLEASE ENSURE YOU BOOK THE CORRECT DATE!

PLEASE NOTE THE VENUE RELIES ON THE INCOME FROM DINING TO ENSURE WE CAN BOOK ALL THE GREAT ACTS PERFORMING.

Income from the provision of pizzas is very important to the venue and if you have booked a table it is a requirement that all people sat at tables order food - a salad alternative is available to pizzas. Please do ensure that all individuals will be ordering on your table - if  this is not the case please cancel your table so others who are looking to dine can do so. Our apologies to raise this but recently we have had many tables (some very large) where less than 50% of those sat at tables have ordered food. Financially this is a real problem to the sustainability of the venue. 

  • All seating at tables must purchase a pizza - so please do not book a table if everyone is not eating.
  • Please ensure that you arrive 10 minutes before the time slot allocated to order your pizzas prior to your booking time.
  • Tables not seated within 15 minutes of the allocated time may be lost and allocated to other audience members wishing to order pizzas.
  • If you wish to book a table for 6 or more please email info@acapela.co.uk

Please note that all of our pizzas are made fresh to order and cooked in an authentic wood-fired oven. It may take up to 45 minutes to be served during busy periods.

IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO BOOK A TABLE YOU CAN STILL ORDER PIZZAS ON THE NIGHT (USUALLY ON BUSY NIGHTS NO LATER THAN  7.15PM) AND WE WILL SERVE THEM TO YOU WHEREVER YOU ARE SAT IN THE VENUE - IN A PIZZA BOX.
