Small is Enough is an ‘Extended Play’ record created for Villages in Action in partnership with community groups on Dartmoor and in Teignbridge. The four original songs were inspired by the stories and perspectives of different participants at Dunsford Memory Café, Made Well C.I.C. day centre, Community Links and Riversedge Court retirement apartments in Okehampton.
The music, lyrics and arrangements were created by Ben Glass, Megan Taper and Lucy Bell with choir leading by Megan Taper and Naomi Turner. The songs were sung by a community choir in Bovey Tracey including singers Helen, Lindsay and Sheila.
The songs encompass the vibrant textures of small Devon communities…from feminist chickens to moonlit dips, and were recorded at Exeter’s Sound Gallery Studios.
