New Song Released as Part of First Sonic Map of Chilterns
Chilterns Conservation and Heritage focused project – Chalk, Cherries and Chairs – is excited to release ‘Get on Your Boots‘, a lively and vibrant new song written and performed by High Wycombe-based musician Jazz Dylan.
Jazz, a singer-songwriter from High Wycombe who studied at Bucks New University, said: ‘Get on your Boots is all about getting outdoors and experiencing new places. High Wycombe is right on the doorstep of the Chilterns and during lockdown I came to really appreciate how close I was to nature and the huge impact it can have on your mental wellbeing. One of my favourite things about the Chilterns is the amount of sky we have and getting to see all the birds flying. I don’t know what it is about red kites that I love so much, I just think they are awesome. When coming back from holiday, one of the signals I’m nearly there is the sound of a red kite ‘calling my name’ home.’
The song and accompanying music video, showcasing some of the wonderful Chilterns landscape is now available to listen to on YouTube.
Get on Your Boots is the first of what the Chalk, Cherries and Chairs project hopes to be many original songs that will be added to ‘Echoed Locations’ – a new sonic map of the Chilterns.
The Project team is now calling out for more local artists and musicians, to find out more about the sonic map and contribute with their own songs, poems or sounds that will help people connect to the Chilterns landscape. Locals are encouraged to find out more about the project on the website at: www.chilternsaonb.org/echoed-locations
