More Music in Morecambe announces autumn season

The Bollywood Brass Band

More Music in Morecambe has announced its line-up for the autumn 2022 season.

The Morecambe-based community music organisation's season will feature a programme of live music, workshops, events, festivals, exhibitions and more.

After a successful launch of their new programme of gigs All the Right Notes, More Music will expand this in the autumn, welcoming jazz quartet Rafe’s Dilemma on Saturday October 1, youth led fusion music and dance project Jubacana on Saturday November 5 and ska band Baked A La Ska on Saturday December 3.

All the Right Notes gigs are on the first Saturday of each month. Tickets range from £5 to £10 and under 18s go free.

The Devonshire Road venue will also welcome rhythmic storyteller and multi-instrumentalist Rory McLeod on Wednesday September 14, the unique and experimental Pictish Trail on Saturday September 24 (at The Hall in Lancaster), award-winning eclectic folk and Americana singer-songwriter Lady Nade (pictured below, photo by Alec Bowman Clarke) on Saturday October 8 and the UK’s pioneering Indian-style Bollywood Brass Band on Saturday October 29.

More Music are also partnering with Lancaster Arts to present Justin Adams and Mauro Durante at the Nuffield Theatre in Lancaster on Thursday November 3. This new collaboration between the musicians stems from a concert led by Ludovico Einaudi, the legendary Notte de Taranta in Puglia, where the two first played together, recognising kindred spirits in the trance rhythms of Taranta which transcend “melancolia” or the blues.

The annual Fun Palace returns on Saturday October 1, celebrating community art, sciences, culture and the power of connection. Come along between noon and 4pm for a fun free day out for all the family, where there will be plenty of workshops and activities to get stuck into.

More Music are also thrilled to announce the return of their With One Voice singing workshops in October, with the brilliant Zimbabwean born Bruce Ncube. Running from 10am to 4pm on Saturday October 29, Bruce will teach traditional songs from Zimbabwe/Southern Africa in three to six-part harmonies. 

Over the autumn season, exhibitions will be displayed upstairs at More Music.

Morecambe Camera Club’s A Changing World will be featured until October 21, showcasing the group's photography.

Opening on Friday November 4, More Music and Morecambe Artist Colony will present Portrait with a Pal, an exhibition showcasing participants of More Music’s Spirit of 2012 Music for Health projects.

This exhibition reflects on the arts’ ability to have a positive impact on both mental and physical health, social isolation and loneliness. 

More Music will round off 2022 with one of the highlights of Morecambe’s calendar, the West End Winter Lantern Festival (pictured below).


Taking place on Saturday December 3 from 6pm, everyone is invited to join the lantern procession around Morecambe’s West End, this year featuring Baybeat Streetband, Cacophany Arkestra, beautiful lanterns created by the community and the giant Sea Spirit puppet.
