Folk Musical 'Travelling With Thomas' Goes Online


Travelling With Thomas, the emergent folk musical from the combined creative forces of Bristol-based musician/composer Laurel Swift and designer Lizzie Watts, enters its second year of development with a series of interactive, online showcases.

Telling the legendary tale of Thomas the Rhymer, these online showcases are the result of weeks of socially-distanced virtual collaboration between folk musicians Paul Sartin (Bellowhead, Faustus) and Dave Delarre (Eliza Carthy, Mawkin), musical theatre vocalist Laura Vyas, and innovative dancers Jasmine Lam, Juliette Tellier and Ryheim Scott, exploring the dance element of the musical for the first time.

Audiences are invited to embark on a magical journey as a brand new folk musical is created in front of them, with chances to reflect and feed back on the work in real time.
