Brothers Gillespie at St Augustine’s

The Brothers Gillespie

Saturday 22nd July 12 noon – 1.45pm
Church of St. Augustine of Canterbury Front Street Alston CA9 3QW

Our friends from The Parish of Alston Moor have kindly agreed to let us hold a special Saturday lunch-time event in in Alston’s parish church, the Church of St. Augustine of Canterbury. We are very pleased to announce that this will include a performance by The Brothers Gillespie. This is a ‘pay what you can’ event and is open to all. There will be a bar available, and the event will open with music played on the church’s magnificent organ by Mr Richard Pattison. Other performers will be announced shortly.

The Brothers Gillespie weave an especially compelling magic, showing British acoustic music in its best possible light, This Northumbrian duo make music that is animated by lyrical songwriting, fine fingerstyle guitar playing, multi-instrumental musicianship and the glorious tones of their blood harmony.
