Tunnel Songs - songs from the Spitalbrook tunnel sung during Covid lockdown summer 2020

room 7 ECHOES

During the lockdown Dave and Mauveen Lee used to walk up to the tunnel which carries Spitalbrook underneath the A10 and sing songs they had learned from the church around the world. The tunnel is full of graffiti - the news was bad as the first wave of Covid raged. But the acoustics in the tunnel were amazing! A selection of the songs has been placed in a circuit in Barclay Park and up to the tunnel across the fields. If you want your own copy of the songs there are a whole CD of them which Dave and Mauveen are using as a fundraiser for the roof of St Cuthberts church in Rye Park. You can track them down on Facebook. Enjoy the tunnel songs of the lockdown. There is light at the end of the tunnel!
