A unique concert in the Standedge canal tunnel, with the audience travelling by boat to hear cellist and composer Maja Bugge create music in dialogue with this unique space and its particular acoustic.

Maja Bugge is a Norwegian cellist and composer based in Lancaster whose work conveys the familiar and the unfamiliar, the epic and the everyday. She is well known for balancing melodic and meditative improvisations with experimental material, and playing concerts and recording in unusual sites.

At just over three miles long, the Standedge tunnel is the longest, deepest and highest canal tunnel in Britain, carrying the Huddersfield Narrow Canal through the Pennines from Yorkshire to Lancashire.
