Music at High Peak Junction Workshops
Join recording artist Jay Dean, (lead singer of Wirksworth based Goddesses and founder of Dubrek Studios in Derby), in these historic railway workshops to experience a brand new sound composition on Sunday 4th August.
Immerse yourself in sounds inspired by the heritage and surroundings of the workshops in the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage site. The sound piece takes in sounds from the Workshops, the forge Leawood Pumphouse, traditional folk music, the river Derwent and steam locomotives.
The Russell Sisters, musicians who feature in the sound collage are also performing live as part of the event. The Russell Sisters are a folk duo combining harp and vocals and they perform folk songs from the British Isles many of which are inspired by local stories and traditions and in this case transport. A sense of place and roots is massively important in their work. Alisa also plays whistle and flute and Julie runs a community baking project centred around bread, music and traditions.
Live Performances from The Russell Sisters (15 mins) will be followed by Jay Dean’s Sound Collage (30mins) starting at 12pm and repeating at 2pm.
The performances will be introduced by Countryside Service Area Manager, Rick Jillings.
