Burton Music Collective The Telescopes

Burton Music Collective The Telescopes

Art Live Sound Solutions & The Burton Music Collective are delighted to bring back to Burton Upon Trent The Telescopes plus special guests The Telephones & Kez

The Telescopes are an all embracing concern that began in Burton in 1987, the only constant being sole composer/ instigator, Northumbrian born Stephen Lawrie. The band’s line-up is in constant flux, there can be anywhere between 1 and 20 members on a recording.

The Telescopes music has constantly pushed at its own boundaries, it overlaps many genres following its own course, inspiration led.

Time has shown The Telescopes music not only withstands repeated listening but also reveals something new with each listen, it has been described by the British music press as ‘more a revolution of the psyche than a revolution of the sidewalk’; a thread consistent throughout a highly influential body of work spanning over 30 years. The Telescopes have been cited as an influence on many artists across genres, around the world.

Do not miss this brilliant event.

Burton Music Collective is a brand new grass roots music project developed by a collective passion for music, supported by The Brewhouse Arts Centre and East Staffordshire Borough Council.

We believe in music’s power to shape a new future for Burton. Because we’ve done it before; from the 76 Club to The Refinery, The Telescopes, The Leisure Society and Riding The Low, through our vibrant metal, folk and jazz traditions, our town has an amazing musical heritage.

But… right now, we don’t have a live venue dedicated to new music and little going on to support and grow our music community.

The first step on our mission to change that that is a multi-venue celebration of live gigs during November, featuring a whole host of local bands, musicians and promoters, bring shows to a variety of venues across Burton upon Trent.
