The Lost Words: Spell Songs has gathered together eight remarkable musicians whose music already engages deeply with landscape and nature, to respond to the creatures, art and language of The Lost Words, the bestselling book by author Robert Macfarlane and artist Jackie Morris. Those already familiar with The Lost Words, described by the Guardian as a ‘cultural phenomenon’, will know it as a work full of wildness, beauty and power.

The Spell Songs project has allowed these acclaimed musicians to weave together elements of British folk music, Senegalese folk traditions, experimental and classical music, and create an inspiring new body of work, including ‘Heartwood’, a charm-against-harm written by Robert Macfarlane for Sheffield’s street trees. Jackie Morris herself will paint on stage, her work fed to a screen so that the audience can see her painting unfold.

Please note: Concerts Passes are not valid for this event.

…one of the most sublime evenings you will ever enjoy. The magic of these superstars onstage - the art, the music, the sheer, ravishing beauty of the language... one of the greatest concerts we've ever had.
