Songs of the Ridings is a collection of pieces written by Matt Anderson. The project toured the north of England in 2011 after their debut performance at Scarborough Jazz Festival. 

Commissioned by Creative North Yorkshire, Matt composed and arranged a beautiful suite that celebrated the rich cultural heritage of Yorkshire. 



"Commissioned by Creative North Yorkshire and Scarborough Jazz Festival this was a bold and ambitious work composed and arranged by leader Anderson. His compositional ideas are good and his tenor sound warm although on Cold Spell it was appropriately - cool! Kari Bleivik's vocal lines added a Winstonian feel to the ensemble."
