Free daytime recitals in which Newcastle University’s BMus in Folk and Traditional Music degree students give performances that show the culmination of their four years of study.
Each concert will be different, conceived and created by one student, but usually with a band of others to brung in depth and diversity.
All of these performances are assessed and form a significant part of a student’s final mark, and for this reason no Latecomers will be admitted once an individual recital is underway.
2pm – Coral Reid (Fiddle)
Coral Reid is a multi-instrumentalist playing repertoire from the English tradition. During her time on the folk degree she has developed her skills as a solo fiddle-singer, dance accompanist and dancer, having become involved with the north-east rapper and clog dance traditions since moving to Newcastle.
Influenced by current English and American musicians and books of old English tunes, Coral’s recital will include tunes, songs and dances performed on the five-string fiddle and accompanied by fellow students and local dancers.
Some of the biggest names in music visit the banks of the Tyne this May and June while we also have innovative talks and performances as part of Thinking Digital Arts 2017 & Hexham Gathering returns.
