A 3-day Community Arts Festival comes to Woodbridge with ambient music providing the backdrop over the weekend 23rd - 25th Sept.

Producer Jan Pulsford says “Woodbridge has a special feeling - the river and light inspire many artists and musicians. Brian Eno, known as the ‘Father of Ambient Music’ and his brother Roger grew up here. This weekend is celebrating our link to ambient music.”

The highlight of an event packed weekend will be a performance by Suffolk native, pianist, and composer Tom Rogerson, who worked with Brian Eno on their collaborative album, ‘Finding Shore’. Tom Rogerson and Friends will play a Sunday afternoon concert in the beautiful Church of St Marys.

Other events include a daily ‘Chill in the Longshed’ with visual music, ambient Festival Projections, films ’Sisters with Transistors’ and ‘Exploring the Music Metaverse’ streamed live from the USA, a Saturday Environmental Awareness and Local Food Market on Whisstocks Square with Yoga and kids’ events, workshops, poetry, and wellbeing sessions plus displays on how climate change affects the beautiful River Deben, a river wide installation ‘Floating Equal’ will take place at noon with ambient music along the riverbank and a reading of the River Declaration, brought up from the North Sea by canoeists, swimmers, small boats, and kayakers.

Music performers include girl in a gale, 100 Poems, Tallulah Goodtimes, Bonuru, Mawhrin Skel, Aartwork, Sundowners, Mix Master Lyon, Dronescape, Anthony Awad, Hardwired, Tristan Burfield, Daryl Robinson, Under the Sun, Nick Nicholson Electron Chorus, Will Fergusson and more …

So, what is Ambient Music? It is often described as ‘Music to quiet your thoughts’ and ‘Music that doesn’t get in the way.’ Recently the NHS suggested relaxation techniques including ambient music, that can help relieve stress and gain a sense of well-being.

Events finish at 10PM so you can get the last train back to London or East Anglia.
