Rosa Rebecka


A Kadish for Tom

A music performance by artist Rosa Rebecka on Saturday 8 September at Dartington Space. Buy festival pass today to attend.

"I met Tom Slater in Blue House, Foxhole, in 1998. He loved Dartington, and I think it loved him back. We married in Dartington gardens in 2002. By that point, he had already been diagnosed with terminal cancer, and he died in 2003, aged 23.

I’ve written a number of songs for Tom through the years, both love songs from when he was alive and pieces celebrating his memory and addressing grief and survival. I hope they capture a snapshot of the part of him that I always carry with me, memories that might echo into the spaces where he flourished, created, laughed and loved."
