Hillaballoo - call for singers

Hillaballoo is an event celebrating views and visions of Telegraph Hill, SE14. It will take place on 19 July 2008 in the top park (which is situated between Kitto and Drakefell Road) and beyond. The centrepiece is the Amazing Camera Obscura, but there will also be lots of other interesting activities and stalls.

Transpontine is planning to help put on an afternoon session of South London-themed acoustic music near to the park. There are some final details to be sorted out, but we are looking to sign up singers and performers from now. The brief is for people (individuals or groups) to sing a couple of songs each, at least one of which should have a South London theme. The first priority is for songs that actually mention a place in South London, but if you can tell a story that convicingly links a song to South London we might allow it! It could be a song you've written yourself, a cover, maybe even a poem or piece of writing set to music - for some ideas look through previous Transpontine discussions of South London songs. It will be a fairly lo fi set up, really we're looking for people who can turn up and do their thing without too much preparation.

Brockley Ukulele Group are already confirmed and have baggsied The Only Living Boy in New Cross and Up the Junction! If you are interested get in touch with your ideas (email address is at top of site, or leave your details in a comment).
