A celebration of lives and communities through music
A national music project marking this historic time, A Song for Us celebrates our communities and the power of music to bring us together.
Leading singer-songwriters and composers across genres will create a series of fifteen County Songs inspired by the people of their county. These launched here on 23 March 2021, the first anniversary of lockdown 1, with songs by Skinny Pelembe, Seth Lakeman, This Is The Kit & Bucky and Gwenno. Gavin Bryars’ Song for East Riding premiered on 30 April with more to be announced throughout the year.
