Jamie Lockhart will present his new show “A Romantic Destination” which was commissioned by Long Division as part of our Arts Council Funded “A Manifesto For A New Wakefield”.

«A songbook from 1851 used by two brothers; one a folk songwriter, the other the 1st Piper To Queen Victoria. In its pages, the seeds for a life of music that would take a man from the Scottish Highlands to Buckingham Palace.

Six generations later, and that same book is unearthed in a house in Skerray, on the very North Coast of Scotland. Passed from father to son, it now rests in the hands of songwriter Jamie Lockhart.

After 18 years in Scotland, brought up with Ceilidh bands and choirs he, like his ancestor, left Scotland to follow a musical calling. And now, after 18 years in Wakefield, Jamie will take the music from that 166 year old piece of history to ask some timeless questions. And using just his fiddle and his stories, he will try and answer them.

“A Romantic Destination” is a show about home, about the connecting lines that run through our lives and beyond, and the part music can play in piecing it all together.»

Jamie Lockhart studied at Breton Hall, part of Leeds University (now Yorkshire Sculpture Park). He performs and releases music as Mi Mye and is a record producer at Greenmount Studios, Armley (New Model Army, The Cribs)
