Doin’ Different

Sunday 6th December 2015  |  2 – 3pm  |  Book & CD Launch

Please find below a few words from Gareth about the Doin’ Different project and launch event.

Doin’ Different is a combined creative arts and heritage project, which commenced in 2011 when I was asked by folk musician Adrian Tebbutt to write a ballad lyric about a Norfolk legend.  Once we’d composed the song, I suggested we perform it as a spoken word and folk song.

Years of combined arts projects, musical plays, happenings and collaborations with actors, musicians, artists and historians later, the initial ballad has grown into a 39 ballad history of Norfolk (and other bits of East Anglia) called ‘Doin’ Different’ and published for Christmas 2015 by Poppyland Publishing.  There is also Boudicca’s Country, an album of Calway-Morrissey songs selecting twelve lyrics from the book.

Morra and Gaz at the Bicycle Shop, Norwich

The double launch is in the Gallery of Hanse House on Dec 6th and features a 50 minute showcase by Gaz and Morra of their combined entertainments for your enjoyment and edification.  The showcase will end with a carol inspired by Margery Kempe, the visionary of Lynn.  I have ordered a cassock for the occasion.  Morra will model a seasonal range of bowler hats.

Tickets are £5.  A glass of wine is included and there is a bar downstairs afterwards.  Books and CDs will be on sale.  I will sign the book and Morra will do whatever you do with CDs.

Please call 01485 571828 for further info.
