SWEET CHARIOT

 

 

 

Thomas Rutling and the Road to Freedom

 

Friday 24 July 2015, 8pm
Royal Hall, Harrogate HG1 2RG

 

 

"An evening to celebrate two journeys: the extraordinary life of Thomas Rutling, who was born a slave in Tennessee and died in Harrogate a hundred years ago; and the journey from the music he sang – negro spirituals with the Fisk Jubilee Singers in the 1870s – to the electrifying sounds of gospel music today" . MORE....

 

Heritage Corner collaborated with the Geraldine Connor Foundation and Diasporian Stories Research Group on the scripting of this unique show. We also performed alongside celebrity tenor Ronald Samm (pictured below with Thomas Rutling). 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Breeze Arts project
 

We are proud to be working with the Geraldine Connor Foundation's Breeze Arts Project, funded by Leeds City Council.

 

Heritage Corner recommended combining heritage and arts for young people through the Heritage Corner Walk. Participants all took part in the walk, which features narratives that connects Leeds to distant continents.

 

Creative exploration is then led by a team of accomplished artists: Khadijah Ibrahiim, David Hamilton and Christella Litras - who are experienced in empowering young people to enhance their skills in performance.

 

The final product will be unmissable: Thursday 23 July, 7pm-8pm, at Leeds City College. Park Lane Campus, Leeds LS3 1AA. Entry is FREE.

 

See Leeds Inspired for further details.

 

 

 

 

 

SACRED SOUNDS

 

Sikh music traditions and World War One. Here Joe Williams enhances his heritage work through narrating a moving compilation of various historic documents and literature. Having performed to standing ovation at the Howard Assembly Rooms and further performances in Leeds and Bradford - there are signs that this project will go much further. The music and musicians are equisite. This is a partnership between Alchemy and South Asian Arts.
