Art music by Design at Bridport

DESIGN,  Wessex pop art band that is co-fronted by Evolver editor Simon Barber on bass and vocals and Helen Stickland on guitar and vocals, launches the 2017 Bridport Open Studios event with a gig at the town’s Arts Centre on Friday 11th August at 7.30pm.

After their success at last year’s Bridport and West Dorset Open Studios launch event at Eype Church, Simon and Helen have augmented their line-up to include sound interventions by Emma Kingston on cello and vocals, and James Thornton on guitar and keyboards.

They released their debut album, Black Marker Red Marker, in 2015, which gained them BBC6 Music airplay and an invitation to play last year’s New York Poppets.
