Accept and Close

The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Hope Works/No Bounds are starting a new series of livestreams, asking artists to delve into a musical form close to their hearts that they might not be known for but for which they have a serious passion, and to tell this story with music.

To start proceedings Hope Works/No Bounds resident Lo Shea is exploring jazz.

Lo Shea will be taking us through his collection picking out key pieces that have inspired him while at the same time showing the originators of the form. Jazz has touched so many aspects of dance music as well as experimental art and is still forging new directions today.

Join the 3-hour livestream on Sunday 10th May from 1pm – or watch on Facebook after the stream ends.

The stream is supporting Artfelt, a charity based at Sheffield Children's Hospital that brings creativity, comfort and distraction when it is needed most – donate here.
