That’s right! We’ve got a pair of tickets to give away for the Cheltenham Festival performance of Colin Riley’s song-cycle In Place.
Sunday 8 July, 5pm, Parabola Arts Centre, Cheltenham [details]
Recently released on CD and download, In Place is a new kind of song-cycle in ten movements inspired by Robert McFarlane’s Landmarks, exploring how our sense of place informs our cultural identity. Riley has collaborated with writers Robert McFarlane, Paul Farley, Nick Papadimitrou, Daljit Nagra, Jackie Morris, Richard Skelton and Autumn Richardson, weaving together place names, folksongs, found texts, field recordings and scored music to produce a work which speaks to all corners of the British Isles and crosses art-form boundaries.
beautiful and breathtaking, but there were also unsettling moments, uncanny or simply strange. And this is how it should be. For why else would be we explore the coastline or the unknown city neighbourhood, search for the hidden valley or take the path that leads deep into the forest?
