Sheffield Creative Guild are excited to announce that they have partnered up with Boxie Sheffield and Sheffield Plate to bring you Music in the Square at Orchard Square on Friday 1st July from 8pm – 10:30pm!
Following the success of last summer’s Music on the Terrace events, which included talented local musicians and a lively, friendly atmosphere, Sheffield Creative Guild delighted to showcase more amazing musicians from the Sheffield area.
Championed by multiple BBC Introducing shows in the north, Rhiannon Scutt is a Sheffield based singer-songwriter. Decidedly anti-genre in her approach, her music flows between rock, folk, jazz, Americana, and touches on much more beside. For this live performance, backed by the unshakable rhythm section of Philippe Clegg and Sarah Heneghan, Rhiannon’s natural, charming stagecraft will be given the world class foundation it deserves.
Harri Larkin is a Cornish singer songwriter based in Sheffield UK. Although loosely labelled as an Indie Funk, Harri’s writing combines elements of Grunge, Jazz, Punk and Pop music creating something truly new and exciting. In the last year she has been featured 16 times on BBC introducing Sheffield and is well regarded in the scene for her high energy performances and infectious sound.
Boxie focuses on giving space to artists who are female, non-binary, trans or genderqueer, and they will be showcasing a selection of performers from the South Yorkshire area from a variety of genres.
Whilst you’re enjoying the music, why not sample the wide array of street food vendors available at Sheffield Plate? With cuisine from around the world and two bars, there’s choice enough to satisfy all tastes.
Teah Lewis, Musician and Boxie Sheffield promoter, said: “I loved performing last year at Music on the Terrace in Orchard Square, as it felt great to bring the creative spirit and culture into the space. It’s exciting to be working on the gigs as a promoter, especially as Boxie is all about providing opportunities to and platforming musicians who self-identify as female or of marginalised genders. I’m looking forward to bringing the performers into a fun space like Sheffield Plate and to work with Sheffield Creative Guild, who I know provide so much support to aspiring creatives and people who want to set up creative careers.”
Music in the Square is free for all to attend, so come join us for an evening of wonderful local talent, delicious food and fantastic summer atmosphere.
The Music in the Square events are made possible as part of the Economic Recovery Fund.
