Gigs Festivals & Family Events




We’re feeling good here at More Music and we’re ready to share a new season celebrating music’s power to raise our spirits and improve our wellbeing.


There are plenty of activities to get involved in as ever, I’m looking forward to running a workshop on ‘Singing Is Good For You’. We have gigs to quicken the pulse and gladden the heart. I’m a fan of Lady Maisery and I’m looking forward to their joyful harmonies. Be sure to join us out and about in Morecambe’s beautiful environment too. The popular family friendly Catch the Wind kite festival returns in June and you can take part in a cross the bay fundraising walk. Take a deep breath and plunge in! Loz Kaye – Artistic Director

With One Voice

Singing is Good For You! with Loz Kaye A joyful, welcoming workshop celebrating the power of song to promote wellbeing and health.

The research is there – now come and find out for yourself and take part in the practice! No previous experience necessary. We will learn and share a varied mix of repertoire and exercises exploring singing and the healthy voice.

GIGS You Tell Me

The new musical venture from Sarah Hayes (Admiral Fallow) and Peter Brewis (Field Music). With both of them writing songs and lyrics, Peter describes it as “a sort of dual-personal record”. Sonically, the result is a subtly crafted album with a rich and intricate sense of composition, in which strings glide above multi-layered keyboards and percussion, and vocal melodies wrap around one another in snug unison. youtellme.bandcamp.com

Carmen Scott WHEN

10 May—5 June WHERE

More Music Gallery Free Carmen’s photography is inspired by Morecambe, its people and skylines. She is most interested in capturing the human condition in action and the physicality portrayed in being creative. She aims to capture her subjects unnoticed, no posing, just real and in the moment.

Daniel Brereton Daniel moved back up to the North having been in London for 15 years. He grew up in Kendal. He worked as a director of music videos, fashion and commercial and when he returned, he started to document the towns and nature through film photography. Taking trains, as he can’t drive, he would visit towns and cities, some familiar and some not, and search out striking space, compositions and light. Often the absence of something that was interesting, for instance people or cars, that created a kind of tension. And often it would be the spaces in between that he was looking at; the past and the present, nature and urban, tradition and modernity.
