Music in Furness on the BBC


Listen to reporter Jennie Dennet’s programme about music in Furness; it features the Furness Tradition Tuesday session at the Hope & Anchor with Les Ord, Mike Willoughby, Alan Garforth, Gordon Jones, and the gang. Then a bit about the Cardboard Harp project with Mary Dunsford, which arose out of this year’s FT Festival. Other local stuff with open mic sessions, South Lakes Ukelele Orchestra, UVHS Wind Band, John Hall and the Octopus collective. It includes an interview with James Taylor who was part of our Freebandreel project, and can be seen performing in the video of the Winter Gathering.

What a great place Furness is for music, especially Ulverston.
