Cold ghost


Mitchinson & Hutchinson perform Live at Ghost Trace Stellar at the Star and Shadow click here to see the video

We’re working with Polytechnic to develop an evening of free music at Star and Shadow, an open volunteer-run social space and Cinema in Newcastle. We’re inviting bands, musicians, producers and DJs to perform covers, versions, remixes or interpretations of the 1920s and 30s out-of-copyright folk, blues, and jazz from the Open Music Archive. A series of live plugged and unplugged performances will be recorded and licensed under Creative Commons ShareAlike, generating a new resource – free for use and reuse in the future.

The event opens up a temporary channel for music, exchange and discussion that operates beyond individual proprietary and commercial interests.
