The Big Busk, Lancaster

Big Busk

Just a quick Post about this upcoming event!

Lancaster is a city of quite astonishing musicality! The city enjoys Lancaster Music Festival every October, now in it’s 9th year with over 200 acts across 40+ venues.

On Easter Saturday, a group of local musicians will gather in Market Square at 1.00pm to participate in an inclusive community arts event, The Big Busk.

For the last few weeks a group have met in Lancaster Library for preparatory sessions. The Big Busk Team are calling musicians and singers of all abilities to get involved and provide a musical interlude to Lancaster’s town centre, “for the craic.” All are welcome to come along to last preparatory session next Tuesday 11th April.

The songs we will be performing are:

  1. Bob Marley: Three Little Birds
  2. The Beatles: Little Help From My Friends
  3. Jimmie Davies: You Are My Sunshine

Lyrics and chords will be provided on flipcharts on the day!
