Towns, cities and regions, such as Cheshire have an influence on the style of music, whether it is the 'English Countryside' feel of Vaughan Williams, the strength of Elgar's Victorian Malvern, or the skirl of Northumbrian Pipe tune.
Cheshire, famous for its cheese and happy cats, is tucked in against the Welsh border just below the industrial conurbations of Liverpool and Manchester. It provides a link between the Midlands and England's rugged North West counties and it's location, forming a connecting link to these three regions has led to a rich and eventful history. The landscape too is full of variety and interest, ranging from the gentle pastoral lowlands and peaceful wooded hillsides of the Cheshire Plain in the west, to panoramic heights of purple moorland and wild hills in the east.
Cheshire is alive with music, from classical orchestral music, with amateur Symphony orchestras and youth orchestras in Stockport, Warrington and Wilmslow to name but a few & some 9 choral societies: folk clubs in Runcorn, Warrington, Wirral and more: Jazz at the Bollington Arts Centre, and Bridley, Runcorn, and party music being played in pubs and clubs.
