Magical Music Events For All

On these dark cold evenings banish the winter blues and enjoy some uplifting musical events near you. Here are four of our picks coming up in the next few weeks:

Film screening of Landfill Harmonic at Band on the Wall on Friday 13 January, 7 pm. An uplifting film about ‘The Recycled Orchestra’, a group of children from a Paraguayan slum who play instruments made entirely of rubbish. It’s a beautiful story about the transformative power of music, tickets £8 – £10.

Night Moves live at Soup Kitchen on Saturday 14 January, 7.30 pm. Supported by guests Cairobi. Night Moves are a 4-piece from Minneapolis playing electro countrified rock. Reviewed in the past for tight live performances, this promises to be a great opportunity to see some quality live music for under £10.

Don’t miss an eclectic mix of performances at The Bridgewater Hall as part of Craig Ogden’s Guitar Weekend, 20 – 22 January.  Including a film screening of Musicwood; a real life adventure filled journey and political thriller. Pop-up poetry, music and sensory play sessions for babies and toddlers and live performances from lap-slide guitarist, Tom Doughty.

Manchester Camerata are collaborating with HOME in Upclose – The Next Generation to bring classical music into the present day. Thursday 2 February, 7.30 pm, HOME, Manchester.
