As part of the Future Perfect public art programme in Bristol, Tina has been asked to write songs for various community groups as part of Freya Gabie’s Grafted Chorus at Hengrove and Whitchurch Community Orchard.

Starting from The Orchard, each group will begin their own song as the previous one ends – a song grafted, like a fruit tree, onto the last. And so on, with performers branching out beyond Whitchurch Green. The final performance will be Saturday 1 July, 14:00.
