Resonance104.4fm

 

Every Friday for six weeks at 11-30pm, starts Oct 1st

An American musician finds herself disillusioned in London. After a breakdown in the city she embarks on a wayward journey through the North of England. On her way she visits a traditional horse fair in the town of Appleby, invokes transitory disturbance at Sellafields power station, discovers the beauty of nature in the abandoned Teeside chemical plants, encounters Islamophobia in Gateshead and much more along the way before finding the holy musical grail in the City of Newcastle Upon Tyne.

Featuring Marianne Hyatt with sound by Band of Holy Joy and James S Finn. The North is Another Land is a mix of fact, fiction and soundscape with special guests each week:

The series will culminate with a live performance by The Band of Holy Joy and a Talking Musical Revolutions symposium at the Star and Shadow cinema in Newcastle on November 6th.
