Leicester College runs studio at festival

Bands, artists and festival-goers were given the chance to record their own music in Leicester College’s Pop-Up Studio at the Summer Sundae Weekender festival.

The performing arts and music department equipped its tent with acoustic and bass guitars, electronic percussion instruments, microphones and the recording equipment needed to create mini-demo CDs, which were given to artists on the day.

John Meredith, programme area manager for music and sound engineering at the college, said: “We had such a great mix of genres and outstanding talent come to the studio, including performers such as The Skunk Boy Project, Furies, Jersey Budd, Siobhan Mazzei, the Daydream Club and Buenos Aires.

“We also attracted some up-and-coming talent including family bands, young guitarists, keen vocalists — even a ukulele player. We had such a fantastic time at the festival and I can’t wait to get working on the sessions album.”
