The Self Isolation Songbook

Details

SHORT FILM SCREENING + A LIVE PERFORMANCE

On 26 March 2020, the UK went into lockdown due to Covid 19. The next evening, in the sudden stillness, musician Art Terry played a song on his guitar. Lying on the sitting room floor, his partner Helena Smith idly filmed Art and sang along. Equally idly, she suggested he record a song a day for the then unknown period of lockdown.

For the next 52 days, Art recorded a song each day. Each day Helena made a video for the song. The Self Isolation Songbook short film, comprised of the daily videos, was premiered at the We Out Here festival in 2021.

Following screenings, Art Terry + his big band, the Black Bohemians, expand on the self-isolation songs, with a full choir and brass section as well as keyboard, drums and double bass. Gospel glam meets hauntological funk: get ready to dance.
