Happy Birthday soundLincs!
Written by Ed Wellman on 14th May 2014
To celebrate soundLINCS 15th Birthday the organisation arranged an event called B15 where over 350 musicians and singers performed.
The performance which was to mark their 15th birthday celebration was performed on Saturday the third of May at the epic centre, Lincolnshire showground.
Since then it has been available to a worldwide audience to watch.
Incredibly in over just a week the YouTube video of the performance has reached over a 1,000 views.
All of the musicians who performed were aged between 7 and 85 and performed a new composition based on the traditional Lincolnshire Folk tune ‘Lost Lady Found’.
The performance featured 15 different musical genres.
As well as the performance the day included an attempt to break the GUINESS WORLD RECORD for the most people popping bubble wrap.
Since the celebration SoundLINCS are also offering music producers aged 11 to 16 the chance to take part in a free learning and development project called EMPower.
The project allows young musicians the opportunity to work alongside each other and with professional producers in order to develop new skills and advance their techniques.
