The band jamming through lockdown
When the world was told to stay home
British band the Sharpville Show
Location: Norfolk, England
chose to hole up in a country mansion
so they could continue to make music
(SOUNDBITE) (English) FOUNDER OF THE SHARPVILLE SHOW, TODD SHARPVILLE, SAYING:
"So while the world was locking down and running for cover, I realized that live music was deficit on one side of the fence and needed to be accommodated in some form or fashion, and I felt a bit like Noah's Ark. Certain things needed preserving and I had to find a way of preserving it and getting it into a safe place so it could represent itself into the future through the lockdown."
The band has been performing new songs
about the current situation via livestream
They also plan to collaborate with other artists
and carry out charity work
(SOUNDBITE) (English) DRUMMER IN THE SHARPVILLE SHOW, DAN HALE, SAYING:
"It's a massive thing to be in the same room as other other people and jam and interact. Our friends on the outside who are just desperate to go and jam with friends, you know, and they can't wait for that. Very, very blessed, super fortunate.
