Musician Gwendolen Chatfield, April Artist in Residence at Bunnell
Gwendolyn Chatfield is Bunnell Street Arts Center’s international Artist in Residence in April. We are very excited to host Bunnell’s first solo musician as artist in residence.
Gwendolen is a singer songwriter from the Untied Kingdom. She plays guitar and accordion and sings classic Brithish folk songs as well as writes her own songs. Gwendolen will conduct workshops on ceilidh dancing (a traditional British form of barn dancing) and perform concerts of her own work and traditional British folk songs. Over the course of Gwendolen’s residency she will work with the Homer community to create an aural folk map of Homer that explores notions of land, memory and place through song. Her residency project is titled The Folk Tapes of Homer.
