Kentish Express Ashford & District - - SOUNDS GOOD -

STU­DENTS made and played their own in­stru­ments us­ing ma­te­rial found in a wood dur­ing a mu­si­cal work­shop. The joint project with Stour Val­ley Arts and Mu­sic for Change saw more than 100 peo­ple de­scend on King’s Wood, Chal­lock, on Satur­day. The per­for­mance called Notes from Un­der­ground, fea­tured singing and per­cus­sion us­ing in­stru­ments made from wood­land ma­te­ri­als. The day also in­cluded singing and mu­si­cal work­shops with mu­si­cian Lucky Mojo and artist Martin Brock­man. The par­tic­i­pants were stu­dents from St John’s School in Gravesend and teenagers from the Kent Refugee Ac­tion Net­work. Di­rec­tor of Stour Val­ley Arts, San­dra Drew, said: “It was an ex­tremely suc­cess­ful day it was great to see so many peo­ple join­ing in and en­joy­ing them­selves.” The project was funded by an Awards for All Lot­tery grant.
