Tom Kitching

Tom Kitching presents 'Seasons of Change'. The music and stories from 18 months of busking around England. When Tom set off to busk around England, a little over four years ago, he couldn't have known he was documenting the end of an era. From being angrily summoned to return to a County Durham coalmining village to halcyon days amongst fellow buskers on the Cornish Riviera. From the heart of the Black Country to the square mile of the City of London. It was a quest to get to know his own country better, through its native music, a quest completed just in time for the high street to close and the country to head into a state of profound change. "One of the best books on England in recent years." Mike Harding "It's like reading one long, beautiful song" Lopa Kothari, BBC Radio 3 "There are dozens of folk violinists, but few with the attack, passion, and ingenuity of Tom Kitching. The most beautiful instrumental playing of the year." - Sunday Express
