‘The Wheels’ is a new music project inspired by the industrial heritage of Sheffield.  From early beginnings in the water-powered mills of the five river valleys, to the vast sprawling works cluttering the north and east of the city, Sheffield has seen countless people and countless changes during it’s history.

Taking the folk song tradition as a template, I aim to write a major large-scale collection of songs and music based on the histories of the people, places and events which shaped the history and development of the city.

Currently in the research and development phase, the project will included recordings, live performances, workshops, collaborations with local groups and practicioners, and a range of resources.
