Activities and events labelled as 'Taking Place In Cov 2021' have not been produced or commissioned by Coventry City of Culture Trust but are taking place during the City of Culture year.

A guided walk from artist Sarah Farmer tells a story of a part of Coventry’s musical history – from Arthur Rowley, TE Dunville, Delia Derbyshire, Sound System culture, Steel Pan competitions, UK Bhangra and Dave Swarbrick.

The WALK is an exploration of sound, music and culture in Coventry. Starting at FarGo Village the walk will go down Walsgrave Road, past Swan Lane (where the studio of famous Arthur Rowley once stood - the maker of the nicknamed ‘Godivarius’ violins) to the Coventry Music Museum where amongst other historic musical artefacts, a mysterious violin sits in a cabinet.

This walk tells a story of one of many possible histories this violin might have had, exploring the music it may have encountered through using sound, music and performance. The walk will arrive at the museum in good time to look round before closing, should anyone wish to visit – participation in the walk is free but more details about entry prices and exhibitions at the Cov Music Museum can be found at http://www.covmm.co.uk
