Burst Through The Borders - Acts of creativity in challenging times
Live music & discussion with Ruth Blake and Damien Mahoney, who delve into the creative & collaborative processes behind the song & video for ‘Burst Through The Borders’ by the band, Caulbearers.

Produced and released during lockdown, the song & video have received airplay & coverage in every continent, recently featuring on BBC Introducing. 

Damien will share inspiration behind the title and lyrics for a song which imagines a positive transformation of our societies & institutions, dismantling the barriers and borders that separate us. 

Joined by host Ann Skinner, the two will discuss how limitation & simplicity can aid creativity and how feelings of uncertainty, fear and helplessness in difficult circumstances can be transformed through art & collaboration.

Sharing live, original music from locations around the UK, the musicians will also talk about the influence of different texts & traditions on their work and the relevance of these in modern life. 

Brightsky members Damien & Ruth collaborate on various projects such as Music As Medicine, The Order of Love & Caulbearers, as well as on Ruth’s solo releases.

Expect to hear influences of folk, funk, roots & soul in their music.
