Sidetracks & Detours

Sidetracks & Detours

We invite you to follow your art down our sidetracks and detours through the arts, as we walk the walk and talk the talk,  questioning what we see and hear. We will travel from Argentina to Zimbabwe and from Appalachian mountain music to Zumba rhythms.

We will watch  the circus roll into town and we will stroll around local art galleries. We will read poetry and prose and watch drama and dance. We will Lendanear to beautiful music and if we hear of something new we will pass it on.

Sometimes, time is too tight, and again nowadays, even money is too tight to mention. Time, money and life sometimes conspire to prevent us being able to deliver to our readers a review of some of the previews we deliver. When Sidetracks And Detours previewed a Mozart Music event in Manchester, we had been provided with that information by a press release from English Folk Expo shared with us by Steve Cooke, editor of all across the arts at The Rochdale Observer, in print and on line. We knew it would be good but living here on Lanzarote we have to rely on other readers and writers from time to time to keep us fully informed of what´s going on all across the arts in the UK: We are very grateful to Steve Cooke, therefore, who not only had pointed us to a preview of the gig, but then also delivered to us a comprehensive review. So come follow your art down the sidetracks & detours to somewhere in the region of Manchester´s Victoria rail station with Mozart for our soundtrack music as we seek The Book Thief in Bolton. We´ll be accompanied by an old friend of both all across the arts and Sidetracks & Detours who will be constantly asking us ´are you as nervous as I am? We will also have a look at grand plans to invite artists to transform Rochdale Town Hall.
