Thanks to everyone who made the HullSongs launch at Kardomah94 such a brilliant night. We thoroughly enjoyed it, and everybody was ace! The night featured a host of music, spoken word and film, from a dazzling selection of HullSongs storytellers to a packed house.
We opened the show with a song inspired by the River Hull and Humber Estuary and then enjoyed a fabulous range of eclectic performances from Opher Goodwin, Graham Brady, Vivian Querido, Jim Orwin, Andrew Tomlinson, Alyx Tamminen, Jeff Parsons, Catherine Scott, Katie Spencer, Graham Graham Beck and Redeye Feenix and crew – PlayaOne, Tony Reid and Dave. The evening featured songs and stories written especially for HullSongs, and all of them featured fascinating tales of experience and life in Hull. Some were moving and poignant, some nostalgic, some celebratory, even eccentric, and all of them were brilliant.
We were delighted with the response to the HullSongs exhibition displayed around the venue, and look forward to being a part of Hull Central Library in December. Have a look at Rich’s photo gallery of the evening, click on an image and scroll along…
A big thanks to Mal Scott at Kardomah94, a fabulous venue, to Matt Lund for making the sound, lights and video excellent all night, to Jessica Leathley of Hull Library Service for overseeing the Untold Stories project, and to Jan Tomlinson for the panoramic photo.
