Very proud to be able to announce that in addition to some of Derbyshire’s finest young musicians, Lockstock 2019 will feature the fabulous art and music of Wild Willy Barrett. Always one of life’s more eccentric characters Willy is working on something new which he describes here:
“As an ‘off piste’ artist, it is always creatively challenging to reach out to new audiences, and this year I am hoping to engage a wider public with a new project.
“It is now my intention to construct a performance Stage Pod (a sizeable sculpted structure approx 5m x 4m in area x 2.5m high). I will craft integrally designed musical instruments which will be featured in my proposed Part of the Art touring concerts as well as monthly web-based live transmissions from “The Pod.”
“Combining my woodworking and musical skills, along with my love of lo-tech mechanical embellishment, I’m aiming to introduce a wholly unique experience to a suspecting public. All new ‘Part of the Art’ mp3 recordings will be free to all my patrons prior to a CD release date.
“I foresee this project taking 12 – 18 months to come to fruition with the scope to develop. To go it alone would be almost impossible. I need your help in order to get this show on the road, in the air, across the seas, on the web or any other form of media either known or hitherto invented.”
