We welcome back Drake Music Scotland as our partners for a second time. Their project last year culminated in a powerful and moving performance of music specially invented by the children of Hillside School and Barshare Primary School. This year they are joined by adults from the Riverside Centre and young musicians from Cumnock Academy.  Drake Music Scotland Associate Musician Matilda Brown will work with our artists-in-residence, Headspace, and storyteller Marion Kenny, to explore the mysterious tale of Cumnock’s own ‘Bell Tree’.

Join us at Cumnock Academy for an astonishing performance. John Kenny’s Headspace is back, featuring Clarence Adoo on a new instrument, Hi-Note, specially made for him since his paralysis in a car crash. Chris Wheeler provides sound projection.
