Jolene & the Jealous Guys, 2018

Step up to the mic, sing your heart out

Over the festival weekend, Jolene and her Jealous Guys take over the bus shelters of East and West Coker, transforming them into glamorous karaoke booths. Visitors are invited to sing from a menu of songs about rivalry in love and the bitterness of heartache. The most passionate performance will win a prize, inserting and heightening a sense of competition across the festival.

Jolene & the Jealous Guys is a specially-commissioned participatory artwork for Od Arts Festival 2018.
