Sing Me A New Song

Sing Me A New SongDelivered in partnership with Glasgow Life, Glasgow Building Preservation Trust, and Live Music Now.

Robyn Stapleton & Claire Hastings (BBC Radio Scotland’s Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2014 and 2015 respectively) led a local community choir, Voicebeat, over 4 weeks of songwriting workshops to develop a new suite of songs, drawing their inspiration and themes from the heritage of the Bandstand. At the end of the workshop period there was a public performance at the Bandstand. As part of the Fox Star Community Arts Festival, an evening of live music and choir singing was held at the bandstand. Voicebeat showcased their 4 new songs, The Kelvingrove Waltz, Foreign Native, A Place for the People, and Barefoot in the Park. Robyn & Claire had the opportunity to perform their own sets too, along with four choirs – Voicebeat, The Glad Community Choir, The Sirens of Titan Choir, and The Parsonage. The evening was a terrific opportunity for the musicians and the community choirs to perform at such an iconic venue.
