I received the best news in October, Arts Council England are awarding me with a grant for Poppyland Songs; A Rural Idyll


This project was inspired by my Great Great Aunt's journals from 1912-1914. She interviewed people living in the tiny village of Sidestrand where I also grew up. Within these journals are stories, songs, local lore and general life as told to her by these mostly very rural people. A beautiful window into life back then from the mouths of people who would otherwise have have been lost to time. These journals inspired me to compose music and research more about the area I grew up in.

I'm so excited to take the next step and continue Kit's work and use todays residents' testimony to inspire more music and song celebrating life on a cliff edge. If you are interested in taking part then please get in touch.

I've started to understand what 'being a musician' really means to me. So deeply embedded, I've always taken it for granted.
