Hi – my name is Chris Beales (lead singer of the band Avian). I am hosting an event, as part of the Reading Climate Festival, on Sat 14th November. It’s called “How does it make you feel…?“ and is a chance to talk about the links between climate change – and the emotions that inspires – and us as musicians.
I am going to be working with the wonderful Fiona Talkington (BBC Radio 3). We want to play through a few songs, with interviews with the musicians. The aim is to explore different genres and different feelings. And then wrap up the ‘show’ with an open conversation, talking about the role we have as musician to inspire and energise climate action.
We are looking for musicians / bands with links to Reading. Do you have a song that you have written that has some link to topic of climate change? It might be an angry song / piece of music; a lament; a protest song; or something that makes you hopeful. If you do, please follow this to Introduce your song.
I can’t wait to hear from you.
Wishing you well,
former Chair of the Reading Climate Change Partnership (RCCP)
