On March 18th 2011, eight artists (Steve Knightley, Jackie Oates, Andy Cutting, Caroline Herring, Jim Moray, Patsy Reid,
Leonard Podolak, Kathryn Roberts) gathered together in Shropshire for a 7 day residential, with an artistic brief to create new works that have a 'resonance and relevance' to Cecil Sharp, and in particular his Appalachian travels and song collecting between 1915-1918.
The residential was immediately followed by 3 concerts (one in Shrewsbury, and two in London), these performances were professionally recorded for a CD release in the summer.
The artists reconvene for a final performance at Shrewsbury Folk Festival in August 2011.
