Songs of the Streets

room 10 ECHOES

"Songs of the Streets" is a participatory heritage project, which has explored the oral & community heritage of the area around Holy Trinity Church in Sunderland (Seventeen Nineteen). Community musicians, Paige Temperley and Holly Rees, have worked with residents to gather unique local stories about their own heritage. The musicians have turned them into songs & music, creating a unique music map of Old Sunderland.

Songs of the Streets is a partnership project between We Make Culture and 17Nineteen, and has been made possible due to funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Many thanks to National Lottery players.
