The Start Of An Epic Journey... To Write A Folk Musical... In Public!

Year One comprised four sections, each with research, making and showcases exhibiting Lizzie's artwork alongside Laurel's music, performed by leading folk artists.


Taking traditional legend, Thomas the Rhymer as the starting point, we explored four aspects of Thomas's story: landscape, group behaviour, individual characters and journeys.


Audiences contributed to the artistic process, discussing the work, giving feedback and asking very good questions!  


Overall we produced 22 pieces of music, 8 prints, and 5 artefacts. 14 performers presented 16 showcases at 6 venues. These pieces have all have contributed to shaping the project so far and many will make their way into Year Two.
