Part of our Sounds of Nature programme

‘One of the most exciting purveyors of international music in the UK’ – Songlines Magazine

Following a two-week rural residency, eight extraordinary musicians embark on a tour of 10 venues, sharing new collaborative works and solo performances. Making Tracks is based around the twin theme of musical traditions and the natural world and the inaugural nature theme for 2022 is Birds.

Since 2010, Making Tracks has brought world-class and diverse music from all corners of the globe to a network of leading venues throughout the UK. Re-launched in 2019 their ambitious new model brings together exceptional young artists from the UK and around the world to showcase unique musical traditions, initiate new collaborations and contribute towards a global community of environmentally-engaged musicians.

The project is based around the idea that musical encounters have the power to reach across social, cultural and geographical divides, and foster a deeper appreciation of musical and cultural diversity. The events aim to awaken curiosity and deepen understanding of the world through music.
