More Songs from this City
Saturday 15 June, 1pm – 3.30pm
£5 per person
Following the successful Songs from this City event in November 2023 we are delighted to bring you More Songs from this City. Join harmonica player Jim Bullock and singer songwriters Andy Fraser, John Wilkins and guests for an afternoon of contemporary music inspired by the changing cultural fabric of Sunderland, including previously unheard songs.
Andy and John are solo performers whose musical compositions and instrumental style are heavily influenced by American traditions, from finger-picking country folk and blues to those of the Appalachian mountains.
At the heart of Andy and John’s songs are powerful, original lyrics. Follow them on a musical journey travelling from Wearside to the USA and back again, exploring Sunderland’s past, present and future.
To book your ticket please visit the Museum shop or click the ‘Book Now’ button. This event is supported by the Friends of Sunderland Museums and Sunderland Culture. Income from ticket sales will go back into supporting youth music in the City.
