Uncommon People

Sheffield’s online musical resource Uncommon People will launch during the festival week. The website is designed to trace a ‘family tree’ of Sheffield’s music. The launch is the beginning of a website that members of the public can upload information to, submit photos, memories (written, spoken or visual) and footage. Get rummaging for old footage and films and we can reformat them for you and add it to this unique resource – we are working with Yorkshire Film Archive to find those little visual musical gems of the region.
