Three Questions

Francesca Bertolotti-Bailey, Acting Head of Programme, has invited artists that Kettle’s Yard have worked with in the past to offer their reflections on these exceptional times by answering three questions with a short video. We will continue to update this list as we post a new artist every week.

  1. What are the best of times now?
  2. What are the worst of times now?

Music at Home

We are very sad to have had to cancel the remaining concerts in our Chamber Music series and our New Music series. We hope that you can enjoy some music resources from home. We look forward to welcoming you back to Kettle’s Yard music soon.

Chamber Music

We’ve drawn together a Spotify playlist of ‘Music-in-Lieu’ for each of the cancelled Chamber Music concerts, comprising recordings by the same artists or of the same pieces from their programmes, plus a few extras that we think you’ll enjoy.

New Music

New Music Curator Tom McKinney has been in contact with the musicians whose concerts couldn’t take place, and we’re pleased to share with you some films and music from them.
