Luke Daniels is bringing an exciting music project to St Helens which gives audiences an exciting opportunity to create their very own piece of music using just their smart phones.

The award winning and critically acclaimed musician is hosting a series of concerts over the next few months which will make use of the mobile technology to jointly create new music with audiences ahead of each performance.  For each performance Luke will be joined on stage by a different world-class performer culminating in a final quartet performance at the end of the project.
