Video: Bygone scenes of Louth and Mablethorpe celebrated in new musical experience

A NEW live musical and cinematic project features exclusive scenes of bygone Lincolnshire, including Louth and Mablethorpe.

The fascinating project combines newly discovered vintage film footage taken by ordinary people with a haunting new live music score is showing in Stamford on July 19.

Past Lives has toured around the Midlands but has been specially adapted for the screening with exclusive scenes showing Lincolnshire. The tour began in Lincolnshire back in March and now fittingly returns for its final date at Stamford Arts Centre.

Capturing moving images is now commonplace with mobile phones and pocket cameras, but before the digital age it wasn’t so easy. Small format movie cameras were the liberating technology of the mid-20th Century, giving ordinary people the chance to record everyday events on their 8mm and 16mm cameras.

The music is composed by renowned musicians Theo Travis (sax, flute) and Belper based Dave Sturt (fretless bass/sound design). They will perform with guest musicians Deirdre Benscik (cello) and Clare Bhabra (violin) from the renowned Sinfonia ViVA, based in Derby.
