Although we had to cancel last year’s festival, this year we have managed to pull a weekend of music out of the bag over the weekend of Friday 23rd / Saturday 24th July. “Alston Live Around the Town” will bring together musicians performing at several venues in the town. The event will help local businesses whilst keeping the spirit of Alston Live alive and kicking.
The venues are: Alston House, Saddlers Bistro, The Angel, The Turks, The Cumberland and Alston Station Café. We are very grateful for their involvement and all events will be free. Artists who have agreed to perform so far include: Melanie Baker (pictured), Driven Serious, Rory Connor, Hainton Symphonic Orchestra, Maz & Kit, Phil Ogg, Trevor Reed, Uncle PAF, Loop Cycle, Auld Suitcase Band, Space Goat Cadets, James Gillespie, The Players, Cool Beans, Roisin Dubh, Fred Sheriff and Marshall Nattrass.
There is something for everyone in there and we hope to a dd a few more names shortly so watch this space. We will announce more details of who will be playing where and when very shortly. We can’t wait to see you all!
