Tinderbox: The Big Jam
Let’s Build An Orchestra.
A five week project organised by Martin O’Neill, working in partnership with Tinderbox and the Dumfries Music Conference with workshops hosted at The Stove, the Theatre Royal and Lovers Lane Studios culminating in live performances at the Theatre Royal.
Local musicians and bands were invited to collaborate with the Tinderbox orchestra over the five weeks of workshops, creating new orchestral scores to music created by Dumfries bands and singer songwriters, including performances from Kate Kyle, musical duo Taagan and the Maiden’s of Music Choir.
All three acts then went on from the performance in Dumfries to perform with Tinderbox and Kathryn Joseph live at the Hidden Door Festival in Edinburgh.
