So, as part of an Arts Council project, we’ve been all across the county of Derbyshire, and now we’re ready to come back home with our songs.
For those that aren’t aware of this project, it’s the brain child of Alex Blood, and features artists such as myself, from the city of Derby. We travel across the county to different towns and villages, rock up around lunch time, learn about the history of the place, sink a few beers with the locals, and then write a song about it.
It all sounds pretty simple so far, the difficult part is that we need to perform that song, to the people of that community, that same evening.
We’ve been to Belper, Ilkeston, Ripley, Ashbourne, Matlock Bath, Wirksworth, and now we’re coming back to Derby, to perform all the tracks in our home city.
The show is on Thursday 31st May at The Maypole in Derby, and is free entry.
Feel free to come along and have a few beers with us, and listen to what we’ve managed to concoct in just a few hours.
