"A Somerset Journey is a search for the sounds and winds of Somerset. It is a month long performance looking for the song of the wind, seeking out songs and stories, and special sounding places in Somerset. We are also asking people to listen to the county and tell us about their favourite sounds.In the journey a troupe of ‘Wind Gatherers' travel around the county creating a series of special events for people to join in with; exchanging and sharing sounds, songs and stories, creating landscape jams and big sings, story telling picnics, campfire feasts, illuminated journeys, and noisy processions."
The journey starts Monday May 21st, Taunton Olympic Torch Ceremony! All welcome!

The 'Somerset Journey' will be of a similar nature, made by the same artists and will, of course, feature a big horn.http://www.flickr.com/photos/richardtomlinson/6933729864/in/set-72157629821345985/
