New Early Stroll Songs

Bristol composer Richard Barnard is embarking on a new project – a new set of Early Stroll Songs, to be entitled “Early Stroll Songs: Lockdown Edition”.

The songs, like the original set (which were premiered by Bristol Song Recital Series Curator Martin Le Poidevin, along with guitarist Amanda Cook), are settings of Tweets made by poet Ian McMillan (@IMcMillan) after he goes on his early morning exercise walk.

Richard is now writing a new set, with the aim of writing, distributing and performing them during the current lockdown situation.

Martin Le Poidevin will again be involved: we’ll let you know how it all goes, and we’ll put some of them on our home page.
