On the 9-11th January 2015, I will be starting to record my composition Sensing the Park. I would like to thank everyone at the Newcastle University music department (especially Agustin Fernandez, Eric Cross, Kathryn Tickell and Mel Whewell) for the funding to help me complete this project. I would also like to thank the Northumberland National Park for their support throughout the project and for taking me on the initial inspirational walks through the park.
The musicians involved are: Paul Knox (Northumbrian Pipes/Fiddle), Amy Thatcher (Accordion/Clogs), Andy Watt (Guitar/Mandolin) and David de la Haye (Bass).
Look out for some blogging in January - we will be reporting from the Newcastle University Music Studios throughout the recording session!!
