Emergent: A Music Legacy (Drake Music)

Emergent: A Music Legacy is Drake Music’s three-year programme, funded by Help Musicians UK and the Wingate Foundation, to provide opportunities, support and greater profile to advance the next generation of disabled musicians in the pursuit of excellence in their music careers.

About the project

The programme offers opportunities, mentoring and support for early-career Disabled musicians to help them begin to get established in the sector. Emerging musicians benefit from masterclasses, performance opportunities and recordings of their new commission.

Alongside this commitment to composition is training for Disabled musicians who would like to work as music leaders. Drake Music’s research revealed that disabled people are severely under-represented in the music education and arts workforces and this programme aims to create opportunities for disabled musicians to transfer their skills into the classroom or community music settings. Emergent offers much-needed new pathways into the industry for disabled people and supports their growth and development as artists and leaders.

Musicians in Museums

National Maritime Museum, London, United Kingdom

Staff members of the National Coal Mining Museum on Bryony Griffith and Andy Seward's residency:

  • “I must admit I enjoyed singing much more than I expected. I was surprised how quickly we all picked up the music and lyrics. I felt good that I had been asked to be part of the group. I realise also that I like folk songs and their portrayal of life years ago.”

    “I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Bryony and Andy.  It’s been great fun learning our coal mining songs and being able to perform them at the Museum’s 30th anniversary celebration, as well as contribute to the Radio Ballad.  It has been great to spend time with colleagues (both staff and volunteers) outside of our ‘day jobs’ and I think the experience has brought us closer together as a team too.  I would love it if the Caphouse singers could continue into the future, perhaps getting more colleagues and visitors involved.  I think that music is a really great way to encourage more people to connect with the coal mining heritage and its stories.”

  • To offer a creative opportunity for a professional musician working in the English folk idiom (song/instrumental) to draw upon the collection(s) and themes of the museum to inspire a new piece of music;
  • For the artist to develop their communication skills through leading workshops with eg young people, schools, adult groups, which will illuminate their creative practice and process and providing a different way to present the museum’s collections.
  • To bring together tangible and intangible heritage through the creation of a new musical work and associated education projects and develop new audiences for both.
