This free, intimate, after-hours gig takes place in the unusual venue of the Living Worlds Gallery at Manchester Museum. Performing is the experimental folk-rock band Firefly Burning. Evoking the likes of Sufjan Stevens, Steve Reich and Kate Bush, this five-piece from East London create cinematic songs that are part minimalist chamber music. The group has released two albums, and will also be playing previously unheard songs from their forthcoming record. Also appearing will be 17 up-and-coming music artists from the North West. The event is organised by the music charity Brighter Sound, which brought these artists together at the museum for a week-long residency of collaborative music-making. This performance will showcase the original music created during this week. This is a standing show with limited seating available. Tickets are free but limited, so book now to avoid disappointment.
