The Singing Ringing Tree is a musical sculpture standing in the wind on a hill overlooking Burnley. From far and wide, the tree’s profile is visible on the horizon, appearing and disappearing in the mist. Families and friends journey to Burnley to hear the tree sing.

The tree is constructed of stacked pipes of varying lengths, orientated to lean into the directions of the prevailing wind. As the wind passes through the different lengths of pipe, it plays different chords. Each time you sit under the tree, looking out through the wind, you will hear a different song.
