We’ve had some lovely buskers at Sculpture in the Valley this year.
Opening with Lovely Boy on 28 May, and this weekend we saw Los Perroflautas and The Kitchen Band below.
We are pleased to announce that we have a selection of the best local music talent performing for you outside the Yurt Café on a ‘busking’ basis. Listening is free (applause is permitted!) and donations “in the hat” are much appreciated. The Line-Up is as follows:
Wednesday 16 – Sizewell Gap – members of this famous local Ceilidh Band will perform a rollicking set from about 2pm.
Sunday 20 – Matt Shepherd – singer/songwriter somewhere in the spectrum between Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell – performs his own material from 10am.
Thursday 24 – Heartbeat – women’s choral group singing beautiful harmonies to delight the ear – from about 1pm.
Saturday 26 – Ambientstra who, as the name suggests, play improvised ambient music – from around mid-day.
Sunday 27 – Zarama – jazz-tinged tunes from around mid-day on the FINAL day of this year’s Sculpture in the Valley!
OTHER EVENTS – DANCING, WALKING, LISTENING, LEARNING AND DEBATING!
PLEASE BOOK ONLINE in advance at waveneyandblytharts.com so that we know whether the events are viable (we will contact you in advance and refund payments in case of cancelation). Meet outside our Reception Marquee.
Thursday 17 – ‘Curator’s Walk’ with David Baldry – A walk around our Sculpture Trail in the company of the man who selected the works displayed. David will say something about the artists involved and their intentions in producing the works that you see – there’s plenty of scope for vigorous debate! – from 2.30 to 4.30pm – £10 / £8 (for W&BA members) BOOK HERE
Saturday 19 – ‘Follow the Trail and Tell the Tale’ with members of the Suffolk Poetry Society – Join the poets who have been inspired by the sculptures to write and read their personal reflections in situ. Come with them on the journey, listen to what they have to tell and offer your own responses to their poetry and the installations that inspired them – all in the intimacy of a small and interested group of fellow explorers! It’s FREE but please use the link to the W&BA booking site so that we know that you intend to come. BOOK HERE
