More calls for Musicians in Museums
Published on Thursday, 02 November 2017 17:03

CONNECTIONS Exploring the tangible and intangible heritage of England

We are delighted to be partnering with the National Coal Mining Museum for England, the National Maritime Museum and the Museum of English Rural Life to offer folk music artists exciting creative and learning opportunities.

With funding from Help Musicians, over the next two years we are looking for six excellent artists to be a musician in residence at one of these museums and explore the creative links between the tangible culture and history of the museum collections and artefacts and the intangible culture and history of folk songs and tunes.

The residencies are spread over a 12 month period. Each artist will receive a bursary of ?5000 to develop a new music work to be performed at the end of the residency and deliver outreach activities to engage people with the museums and with folk music.

The first residencies started in Autumn 2017 with the National Coal Mining Museum in Wakefield.

Applications are invited now for residencies with NMM and MERL, for a January 2018 start.

THE RESIDENCIES
National Coal Mining Museum for England, Wakefield, Yorkshire
Period - Autumn 2017 for 12 months

National Maritime Museum, Greenwich
Period - January 2018 for 12 months
Closing date for applications: Monday 6 November 2017

Museum of English Rural Life, Reading

Closing date for applications: Friday 10 November 2017

National Mining Museum - start at the bottom and work your way up, I suppose

Mo, Max is in the process of moving Mudcat into a new server, and some of the functionality isn't caught up yet. If you can use the html code or ascii symbol instead of the keyboard letter or symbol, it should show up.

One possibility is that somehow or another, the offending keyboard may have been reset to the American system. How to cure it depends on which system you are running.

Just as a "by the way" since the title mentions musicians in UK museums, (and I know it has nothing to do with the EFDSS project above), it is a relatively common occurrence to see musicians in the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh: during Edinburgh Festival, there are often lunchtime concerts in the ground floor area of the newer extension.
At other times there are themed "lates" in the big hall in the older part of the building. There is to be one of these on the evening of Friday 10th November, just towards the end of the exhibition re Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobites, which has been running for the last few months, with a ceilidh band called...."The Jacobites" playing for dancing.
The Mining Museum at Newtongrange also has musical events from time to time, often featuring songs about mining.
And there will be others around Scotland.

Live music in museums and galleries is quite common but is more likely to be jazz or classical rather than folk.

Used to take the band(OTB) into Milestones Museum Basingstoke on a regular basis. Usually played in the Pub on site and had a great reception. Also organised Morris Dance Meets there and they had a Mummers Play each Christmas. Then Hampshire "Cultural" Trust took over and it all stopped. Culture to them is putting on an exhibition of Lego or Teddy Bears. They also are very keen on Halloween costumes, Knitting and sewing. No music allowed.
