A BAND of musicians and poets are looking for new members to help with an experimental musical experiment.

The Rossendale group are currently looking for new members to help integrate music with poetry.

This could be in the form of single musician or with a full band. The group are looking for musicians who would be interested in collaborating on the project.

Ray said: "Folk music and poetry have traditionally gone together and in recent trials we have found that Gershwin and the classics go well.

"Anyone interested can come along to our practice session for free and there is no obligation to commit yourself."

The group is Haslingden Splash which is funded by the North West and Mid Pennine Arts groups.
