Libby Burgess’s New Paths

clare mccaldin podcastIn my line of work I bump into all kinds of interesting people with great stories to tell. However, because they work behind the scenes you won’t always get to hear them. I asked them if they’d like to talk to me (and my iPhone!) about what they do, so that I could share it with you here.

In this podcast I talk (in a rather noisy cafe) to pianist Libby Burgess about New Paths, the festival of chamber music and song that she and Roland Deller have established in Beverley, Yorkshire. It’s no mean feat setting up a festival from scratch, even if you do have a few local connections, and we talk about what makes for success, ideas for programming and the thrill of finding your concert is sold-out.
