Brigg Fair
about the project On the CD is a sound collage of an ancient Romany horse fair in North Lincolnshire to celebrate the 800th anniversary of the Brigg Fair.
about artist and participants Elle Osborne (Lincolnshire) is a musician and sound artist. Her interests lie in the power of sound to evoke visual images. The sound collages of Elle Osborne explore new notions of folk music using found sounds, samples and oral history. Inspired by traditional music collecting, her aim is in elevating and celebrating the commonplace honouring a moment, acknowledging continuity and change, resonance and relevance. “In performance, I accompany myself on the violin. I play my own songs, plus the English folk songs and fiddle tunes I was raised listening to.”
