  Workhouse Choir Wednesday 19 November 2003  
The singer songwriter Sally Brown this September added another string to her bow by winning the prestigious Orange Prize for Short Fiction.

Her story, Inside Ella Fitzgerald, describes in Ella's own voice a UK tour she made in 1961 with the Oscar Peterson Trio.
Next week sees the performance at Southwell Workhouse, near Newark, of Sally Brown's latest songwriting venture - bringing the voices of the despised and forgotten former inhabitants of the workhouse "out of silence". Angela Robson reports.
