Allen Valleys

DSCN0770Lowp had a great day in Allendale Town at the Allen Valleys Folk Festival┬álast Saturday. After an early start of breakfast and coffee in the Golden Lion with Chris Meredith & Watchtone and morning soundchecks with The Brothers Gillespie, the afternoon concerts in St Cuthbert’s Church were a musical treat. One of the highlights of the day, however, was the youth stage, with some amazing talent showing that trad music is in good hands in the North Pennines.

The festival is wonderfully organised and one of the friendliest we’ve been to, with a fantastic variety of acoustic and folk music, so make sure you put it in your diaries for next year.
