A Bridge Across The Flood

Details and guide tracks for the upcoming performance of "A Bridge Across The Flood" by Robin Grant and Neil Beddow as part of Keynsham Music Festival on 30th June, marking the 50th anniversary since a flood which had a great impact on Keynsham.


In 1968 a flood impacted on the River Chew, causing damage and disaster to areas such as Keynsham, Chew Stoke and Pensford. In commemoration of this event a piece was written by Robin Grant and Neil Beddow called "A Bridge Across The Flood". This piece was given it's first performance marking the 30th anniversary of the event. To commemorate the 50th anniversary we are putting together another performance.

I'll be conducting the performance and have been responsible for the typesetting of the original score from the hand written copies we've tracked down. We're also running weeky rehearsals on Wednesday evenings for anyone who would like to join the main choir, and there is also a part for a community choir who will be meeting , rehearsing and learning their part on Sunday 20th May.

If you're interested in taking part please contact me at rich@richardjacksonmusic.com and I'd be delighted to hear from you!


Sing In A Day!

Sunday 20th May 2018 | 2-5pm | Queen's Road Methodist Church, Keynsham | FREE ENTRY

Come along and sing in a piece of Keynsham history!

As part of this year's Keynsham Music Festival there will be a special performance of "A Bridge Across The Flood", a piece written to commemorate the Chew Stoke flood of 1968 and it's impact on Keynsham. Written by Robin Grant and Neil Beddow and originally performed 20 years ago, we'll be performing it once more on the Keynsham Bandstand on Saturday 30th June at 5pm.

We're looking for more singers for our community choir. As we're aware of how busy this time of year can be, we've decided to host our first 'Sing In A Day!' event - come along, learn and sing through the piece and then you can just show up for the performance!

The community chorus's parts will largely be in unison and we'll be going through every note so don't worry about any sight-reading; our main priority is to just get people singing! We're also prepared guide tracks for each piece and each part individually, and scores can be provided before the event as well.

This free event will be taking place in Queen's Road Hall in Keynsham Methodist Church. All ages and abilities welcomed!
