1pm: workshop, 2pm: walk to Easby
‘Locomotive Rhythm’ is a new piece of music celebrating the local railway heritage of the north east of England and the world-changing developments leading to the birth of the modern railway system, heralded by the opening of The Stockton and Darlington Railway in 1825. The work features new and unique instrumentation, in the form of replica locomotive wheels, cast in a local foundry using recycled bronze and aluminium, to produce resonant percussion effects inspired by walks along disused railway track beds, wagon ways and station platforms. There will be a hand-drumming workshop for parent/carers and children from 1pm-2pm followed by a walk along the railway line to Easby and a percussion performance by Graeme on the return of the walkers.
