Punkit is a music education project that MB artist Joby Burgess has been working on for the past 18 months. On Tuesday 13th Joby and 60 School children will be performing Punkit at the Usher Hall in Edinburgh. This project is something the Edinburgh school children have been working on for the past 12 weeks.

"Composed by Stephen Deazley and featuring renowned (and Bedfordshire local!) percussionist Joby Burgess, PUNKIT was commissioned by Bedford Creative Arts and developed in partnership with Love Music for young people. Its creation was driven by the vision to provide an entirely accessible experience that would inspire musical curiosity, teach new skills and broaden musical horizons… and knock Bedford’s socks off by making lots of noise.

PUNKIT was designed to be a bold and explosive participatory music work for massed percussion and was performed by 93 Year 7 students from Harrold Priory Middle School on March 23rd, 2016 to an audience of 200 people at the Bedford Corn Exchange." -
