Folk Festival Photos | Cecil Sharp Project 2011
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.
