This collection of tunes is from Andrew Veivers’ work over the last decade as a Composer and Festival Orchestra Director for the Fire Event – the ceremonial closing of the Woodford Folk Festival. The music was composed over the years as the soundtrack to many of the larger than life Fire Event characters and their narratives…heroes, monsters and flights of fancy dreamt up by directors Joey Ruigrok van der Werven (2012/13 & 2013/14) and Alex Podger (2014/15 onwards) and brought to life by the many musicians, singers, puppet and lantern makers/operators, painters, costume designers, actors, prop makers, set builders who make the annual pilgrimage to Woodfordia year after year.
