New Scratch is based on a musical group who existed in the 1960′s and 1970′s from Britain called the Scratch Orchestra. They were mainly concerned with making modern, highly experimental music, open to the public. For instance they once performed a piece where they hung upside down from a tree playing Clarinets in one of London’s public parks (and before you ask no my idea doesn’t involve hanging upside down, or climbing anything).
Essentially New Scratch involves three or four musicians improvising (and by this I mean play anything they want) in a sort of conversation to each other, across a public space.

Stockpile Artists Collective is kicking off Season 4 with your favourite Canadian tunes in Gerri Lynn Mackey’s “Made In Canada”.
Gerri Lynn is taking to the streets this Canada day dressed in a ridiculously patriotic outfit designed specifically to compliment her tuba. Mackey is particularly excited about this years performance of “Made in Canada” as it the third annual– making this event an official tradition. She has added a few news tunes to her musical repertoire and can not wait to surprise revelers with her unique brand of entertainment.
She’ll be jumping in on the Corner Brook Canada Day events, starting with the Flag Raising and heading on to the Community Walk, Pancake Breakfast, finally ending up at Margaret Bowater Park.
