Community organisation, Let’s Go (Yorkshire), is pleased to announce it has been awarded funding from Arts Council England and Kirklees Council to develop the Sound System Culture project into a national tour.
The tour will document the UK’s vibrant sound system culture, which has been hugely influential in the evolution of British urban music since the 1950s, and will include new photographic exhibitions reflecting the sound system scenes of four UK cities: Manchester (March 2015), Bristol (June 2015), Birmingham (September 2015) and London (January 2016). Venues supporting the tour include The Tabernacle (London), The Drum (Birmingham), Colston Hall (Bristol) and Band on the Wall (Manchester), all large, well established venues that will allow us to engage diverse audiences with this important social history.
The project will also include a series of music performance events and a children’s picture book that will help introduce young people to the world of sound system culture.
Martyn Haigh, Director of Let’s Go (Yorkshire) commented, “We are delighted to have the opportunity to develop meaningful collaborations with new venues to establish the company within the national touring circuit.”
