Paint the Town in Sound Podcasts

Mercury Prize nominated Sunderland band Field Music and Sunderland Culture, present the Paint the Town in Sound Podcast mini-series to accompany and compliment the Paint the Town in Sound exhibition at Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens.

The Paint the Town in Sound exhibition explores the timeless relationship between art and music, examining the direct links forged between musicians and artists and Sunderland’s independent music scene. The artworks in the exhibition, drawn from the Arts Council Collection, offer a fascinating insight into the musical heritage of the region providing a route to examine our own cultural identity and its relationship to class, politics and place.
