The Project

About the Project

Fleet Reflections was a project for songwriters and aspiring songwriters, run through The Mill on the Fleet during 2017-18.  Both experienced songwriters and those who had never tried before took part.

Using inspiring locations throughout the Fleet Valley National Scenic Area and on Cairnsmore of Fleet National Nature Reserve as its focus, Fleet Reflections provided the opportunity to take part in a new musical project using our beautiful landscape and its stories as inspiration.

The project used workshops, mentoring, and a closed online group for support and feedback. 

Songs were performed at a special Mill Session on 23 March 2018.  Songs will continue to be performed at future events we hope and continue as part of a local repertoire. 

Most of the songs have been recorded and either live at the concert or separately and are available on the Fleet Reflections website, or through the Mill on the Fleet website.

The group remains in touch and it is hoped to keep the project active on an informal basis.  With this in mind the project remains open to future collaborations and contributions, and anyone who would like to get involved is warmly welcomed to get in touch through the project website or through any of the participants.
