John Kerr Award History: The First Venue – Finchcocks Musical Museum

The final of the first competition in 2006 was held at Finchcocks Musical Museum, using Richard Burnett’s unique collection of early keyboard instruments.

Here there was a personal connection, as John Kerr was a regular performer at the museum Open Days, where he delighted audiences with songs from the English repertoire.
