Trevor Pitt has been investigating the life of Wednesbury artist and local legend, Fred Barnfield, by rambling (walking) and rambling (talking) with people from the Black Country who knew Fred. Trevor has created an installation at Wednesbury Library that includes a podcast of conversations with Fred’s friends and family and has organised a guided walk.


For the launch of Blast!, the podcast will be available to listen via the Blast! website. It will also be positioned as a listening post in Wednesbury.
