Live within the Scenery, Amos Miller

Amos Miller is best known as a trombone player; he’s a founder member of JAM regulars, Onyx Brass and Principal Trombone Live within Scenery, Amos Millarof Birmingham Royal Ballet.  He is also an extraordinary photographer!

In his first solo exhibition, he brings his unique eye to Dungeness, with a set of utterly beautiful images that take the area and very slightly turn it on its head.  His images are both striking and challenging, though never alienating, whilst capturing the beauty of this unique shore in a spectacular and usual way.

He comments “I’ve always been struck by the beauty within the bleakness of Romney Marsh and the way human landmarks seem to have “osmosed” into the landscape. Human landmarks, from the medieval churches to the acoustic mirrors to the nuclear power station seem to live within the scenery rather than trespass upon it.”

Romney Marsh Students' Photography

Last year, JAM on the Marsh and the Romney Resource Centre began an exciting new photography collaboration, leading to Romney  Marsh Students' Photographyan exhibition in the 2018 festival. Led by Susan Pilcher, with additional mentorship from Justin Sutcliffe and Tristan Fewings, we have continued our weekly club for the local young people, with the end goal being this exhibition and an Arts Award for the participants.  These young photographers have worked hard to create this very public exhibition, along with the world famous Romney Hythe & Dymchurch Railway, from Hythe Station to The End of the Line Restaurant, Dungeness, gaining skills all the while.

The festival and Romney Resource Centre have a reputation for delivering high-quality training, with a wealth of experience in supporting individuals and the wider community.  Our aim is to improve the lives of local residents on Romney Marsh by providing education and helping people close skills gaps.

Sculpt the World, Jon Foreman

Jon Foreman’s beach sculpture is one of the most exciting exhibitions that has ever come to the festival.  Daily, from 4th – 14th July, Sculpt the World, Jon ForemanJon will create breath-taking works of art on the sands at Dymchurch.  These will be seen from the seawall at the Hythe end of Dymchurch beach, opposite Sycamore Gardens.  Like a giant Etch A Sketch, the sea will come in and rub away each piece of art, ready for the next day’s piece.

Traditionally, the view of art is of something permanent, of a piece to be kept, dusted and passed on. Jon’s work challenges this perception, producing staggering, ephemeral designs that are lost with the next tide.

Jon Foreman will be the first Artist in Residence at JAM on the Marsh.

Selwyn College Choir/ Canterbury Cathedral Girls Choir

Paul Mealor’s The Farthest Shore headlines a fantastic concert featuring choirs from Cambridge, Canterbury and Romney Marsh children, Selwyn College Choir/Canterbury Cathedral Girls Choiraccompanied by brass and organ. Music by Mendelssohn, Parry, Barber, Copland and Stanford make up a programme also including a Festival Commission by Daniel Saleeb.

Parry’s I Was Glad will end the first half of this concert, and this will be the first point at which all the performers come together in one glorious barrage of sound. And this is just the beginning; in the second half we are taken on a journey through an old folktale which tells of a mystical stranger, washed up on the shores, who couldn’t speak the language. He was very different in looks and colour to the villagers, and seemed to be ‘born of the recent storm’. He is greeted initially with much hostility, but in time heals a community. Who was the stranger? Did he really cure the village children of a plague? There are no real answers; however, what is known, is that the village changed dramatically after that encounter…

This concert will be a choral spectacular, and one not to be missed by lovers of choral music or wondrous tales!
