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 fourteen 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 PelembeSeth LakemanThis Is The Kit & Bucky and Gwenno.

Since then we have premiered Gavin Bryars’ Song for East Riding, Karen Wimhurst’s Song for Dorset , Tania Holland Williams’ Song for Kent and Bishi’s Song for London.

Little Boots’ Song for Lancashire premieres  here on Wednesday 10th November 1.00pm.
