Download the full Weorgoran Pavilion festival schedule.
Dave Crowe has created a site-specific soundscape, especially for the Weorgoran Pavilion stage, working with local choirs to compose an atmospheric and mysterious recording inspired by The Ring’s waterways, which will play at selected times. He says, “The waterways of this beautiful landscape have linked communities for millennia, they reflect at all times the vastness of the skies from which the water flows and so a continuous link with one another.”
Dave Crowe began his career as a street beatboxer in Ledbury, mimicking and morphing environmental sounds of his home town into spectacular vocal compositions. His music videos have since gone viral, commanding multimillion hits on YouTube. He performs around the world with his bands HeyMoonShaker and Stranger Faces.
