Songs and Verses from North Cambridge: An Acoustic Selection

Tuesday, 13 July, 2021 , 8:00 pm 10:15 pm

During 2020, Emily Peasgood led Cambridge North Folk Song Project. Peasgood and songwriters Anna Hester and Bob Hines worked online with local people, musicians and poets to create and compile a body of 35 songs and verses that capture the character of north Cambridge today. The project concluded with Songs and Verses from north Cambridge, a printed and online book that will be available to all at no cost from June 2021. The book covers a wide range of themes and musical genres, from local histories to urban myths. On 13 July, we will hear an acoustic selection of songs and verses that feature in the book, with performances from: Andrew Burn, Anna Shelton, Bob Hines, Emily Peasgood, George Breakfast, Guy Dinwiddy, Jessica Law, Lucille Rococoa [SIN Cru], Neil Banks and Stefan Kaye. This event is a unique opportunity to hear a new body of contemporary songs and verses created and situated in the north Cambridge community, which we hope will live on for future generations to enjoy.
