“Tram Tracks” songwriting project
Between June and July I’ll be involved in an interesting and ambitious project lead by music leader Sarah Atter, in conjunction with the Bridgewater Hall and Metrolink, called “Tram Tracks”. Sarah’s inspiration was to celebrate 25 years of trams in Manchester by recruiting musicians to work with various community groups across Greater Manchester to write a song for each of the 93 stops on the network – no small task!
I’m pleased to be working with St Michael’s Primary school in Whitefield and the volunteer group at Ordsall Hall, Salford. There is going to be a gala performance of the songs at the Bridgewater Hall on 9th July, and they will be available to listen to online afterwards too so I’ll post what we come up with!
