Fantastic weekend at Granary Square for the Clay Cargo event

The event at Granary Square over the weekend was really exciting and busy.  We received a fantastic response from a large crowd on both days.  Lots of families came along to the event and it was great to see all the children dancing to the music.

On Saturday, for the first time, we played the new composition ‘Clay Cargo’ created by The Dead Rat Orchestra (Daniel Merrill and Nathaniel Mann).  This was composed especially for the Melodians to play at this event and is based on a traditional tune created when the canals were first built to carry pottery from Stoke on Trent down to London.  ‘Clay Cargo’ was played 4 times over the 2 days.

Here are a few photos from the day.
