It is the homage of the great grandfathers to those of the mining profession. Underground miners, of course! But also to the girls and women who toiled on the sites of the day when coal was separated from shale. The musical theme also evokes that of “The Great Cumbrian Anthem”. “Les Gueules Noires” is a dance to the glory of our city, La Grand’Combe, born from the mine, where we are proud to have our roots.
