Epping Forest's artist-in-residence

Ellie Wilson, our new artist in residence, by one of the Forest's ancient oaks.

We are pleased to announce that local violinist/composer, Ellie Wilson, will be artist-in-residence at Epping Forest throughout 2019. Ellie is a member of ‘Britain’s most exciting new folk band’ (Uncut Magazine) and 4-time BBC Radio 2 Folk Award nominees, Stick In The Wheel and we are excited to be working with a nationally- and internationally-renowned musician and composer on this new Epping Forest-inspired project, Echoes.

Throughout 2019, Ellie Wilson will create a set of new compositions inspired by the history and landscape of Epping Forest. These compositions will be performed in Autumn 2019 and will be available to listen to via a sound installation at the Epping Forest Visitor Centre at Chingford. Some exciting events will be organised for the future.

Echoes is linked to Waltham Forest’s year as London Borough of Culture 2019, a Mayor of London initiative, and will integrate with an exciting new project called ‘The People’s Forest’ which is being curated by Luke Turner and Kirsteen McNish.
