If you have been following shed of the year for a while you will be of course be aware of the excellent work Jon from 2011 Shed of the year winner Songs from the Shed has been doing.
Passenger – Dancing In The Dark – Bruce Springsteen cover – Songs From The Shed
Mad Dog Mcrea – Am I Drinking Enough – Songs From The Shed Session
So I thought I would look at some of the other musical sheddies out there.
One of last years finalists was Folk in a Box
Designed specifically for one-on-one musical performances, Folk in a Box has been presented at the Venice Biennale and Sydney Festival as well as many music and arts festivals around the UK.
and of course no list about music sheds would be complete without the infamous – “Slimmer, taller, happier, better constructed. The scourge of Oxford City Council noise-prevention officers ”
A favourite of mine from a few years back was originally a shiplap 4’x6′ with the front opening fully. The outside is covered in strips of mostly floral fabric, the inside is covered in denim
If a bit of dance music is more your thing then sheddie FROG N CAT has it in spades
but if some singer songwriter vibe is what you are after then pop along to SNIPPET TOWERS
And this year we have two new music sheddies entered for Shed of the year 2015 – one a record collectors dream shed , MARRS PLECTRUM RECORDS
For years Peterborough hasn’t had a proper old fashioned record shop. I love vinyl and had an used shed. Marrs Plectrum Records was the inevitable conclusion
The other SHEDPOP HQ who’s purpose is “Our shed is special as it is constantly changing and hosts our concept of music we call shedpop.
