The Collective take part in Music 4 U's 10th Birthday celebrations.

On Thursday 7th July the Freedom Road Collective took part in Music 4 U's 10th Birthday celebration event which was held at the Albermarle Centre, Hull. Joining the Collective at the event where youth groups from across the region including The Rhythm Pixies, Gyoko Youth Taiko and Rhodes and Molly Curtis in what proved to be an exciting and entertaining evening of music.

First on stage were the Rhythm Pixies who performed an African Drum piece entilted "Kuku" which began the event in style, closely followed by the Freedom Road Collective who performed "Let in Be" and Rose Elliotts' version of "The Importance of being Idle".

Next up were the Gyoko Youth Taiko group who take their inspiration from Japan, (Taiko meaning "Drum" in Japanese), who performed 3 numbers and gave everyone a lesson in drumming Japanese style!

Following the Gyoko Youth Taiko group was Molly Curtis who began by performing an acoustic solo piece. Molly was then joined by Goole Rockers "Rhodes" to perform another two songs much to the delight and appreciation of the Albermarle.

The Event was concluded with a number written and performed with the young people from across the region entitled "Happy Birthday Music 4 U". Donna Smith did a fantasic job in pulling this together and it was a fitting finale to a wonderful Event.

Next up for the Freedom Road Collective is an afternoon performance at the Hull History Centre on the 27th July, closely followed by an appearance at the Withernsea Carnival on July 30th.
