Meadow Farm Recording Studio


Meadow Farm Studio is celebrating 35 years of recording this year, 23 of which have been in Lower Hartshay. The studio also had the privilege of working with the late Murray Slater and the Derbyshire County Youth Wind band for the recording of the original music to celebrate the centenary of the Devonshire Dukedom at Chatsworth. More recently the Studio has just finished completing the latest CD's for Alfreton Ladies Choir, DaleDiva, Rolls Royce Ladies Choir and The Dalesmen and will be recording Voices' (Derby City Ladies Choir) as well as a second album for Alfreton Ladies Choir in early 2010 and will be recording Voices' (Derby City Ladies Choir) as well as a third album for Alfreton Ladies Choir in early 2010. The Studio originated as the Studio Experience which was launched nationally with Red Letter Days with great success some 20 years ago. Danny Jones (McFly) also recorded his debut single Silence in the City' a song about 9/11, during a studio voucher session. This experience is now available in most major retail stores including Harrods, Debenhams, Alders, House of Fraser, etc. Earlier this year Stewart signed a contract with Activity Superstore which puts the Studio in WH Smiths, Argos & Boots as well as on line with Amazon. In November the Studio signed a similar contract with Virgin and is now included in their Experience brochure. Stewart has now made this experience available direct which means a considerable saving for on high street prices. Further details are available on
