Manchester Hill: Meet The Artists

Meet the talented artists selected to create new music that will commemorate the forgotten story of the fall of Manchester Hill in 1918.

Amongst the lineup of emerging talent joining us for this unique cultural event are half of Manchester based harp-driven rock band Diving Station, a keyboardist who worked alongside New Order as part of Manchester International Festival and an alt-rock artist who has been described by Brian Eno as “fresh and exciting to listen to”.

The 13 artists will collaborate with Stuart McCallum (Cinematic Orchestra, The Breath), John Ellis (Cinematic Orchestra, Lily Allen), Luke Flowers (Cinematic Orchestra, Corinne Bailey Rae), singer-songwriters Seaming To and Liam Frost, and composer Katie Chatburn to create new music which will form part of a promenade performance at Manchester Cathedral on Fri 13 Apr.

Tickets for the performance are now sold out however there is a waiting list. Just follow the link below.
