Internationally renowned beatboxer and sound artist Jason Singh arrives in Seahouses to perform his beautifully atmospheric live vocal score to John Grierson’s groundbreaking 1929 silent herring fishing film DRIFTERS as part of a major UK tour to fishing ports on the UK’s East coast.
Complementing Jason’s atmospheric performance will be a rare big screen presentation of archive films of Seahouses from the North East Film Archive and the Old Parish of Bamburgh Local History Archive in the popular community cinema at SeahousesHUB. Through his new live commissioned soundtrack to the films, Northumberland-based singer/songwriter (and professional photographer) Andy Craig brings his historical knowledge of the landscape to explore the transformation of this once thriving fishing village to busy tourism destination.
Andy Craig is a professional photographer and musician who has been inspired by the Northumberland Coast since he moved to the area in 2008. He has an insatiable appetite for learning about the people of his adopted home in Northumberland and the lives they led. His music and photography go hand in hand so it’s an exciting opportunity to experience his music with the visual medium for this special project.
SeahousesHUB is a cinema and entertainment project based in The Hub – Sports and Community Centre. The cinema is run by Seahouses Development Trust which seeks to provide a local community organisation with the capacity to create and take opportunities, develop and manage projects, deliver services, and to create sustainable income streams to support these aims, for the social and economic benefit of the area and its inhabitants.
