|My attempt at embroidery|
Two weeks, two more great events. First up a Museums at Night event including music held on 19th May. The Leeds University Library Galleries hosted an event looking at the anniversary of the Russian Revolutions. A ticketed 18+ event, there was plenty of space and time to look at the various activities.
Musically, members of the Leeds Festival Chorus performed 3 times, selections from Rachmaninov's Vespers. Spine tingling stuff and very effective use of the space in Parkinson Court.
In one corner of the Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery, there was a pop-up embroidery event - anyone could participate in creating an item, either based on artifacts on display or something else!
On Thursday, 25th, we discovered Brudenell Social Club thanks to Aoife O'Donovan's current tour. A really good, cosy, friendly venue and meeting place. After having seen Aoife with the I'm With Her tour it was interesting to see her performing solo. The set comprised mostly songs from In the Magic Hour and a few covers, with a couple of older songs thrown in. A super event, with good solid support from Blair Dunlop.
