Memory Walk

Lowp played a good 45min set at the Memory Walk in aid of the Alzheimers Society in Saltwell Park on the 11th Sept 2011. Despite gale force winds and a rapidly disintegrating stage, the lads & lass put in a great performance of classic songs and tunes, old and new. Steve, being the consummate professional he is, managed to carry on playing whilst being shrouded in the stage tarpaulin.

With new songs being aired for only the second time in a week, the band were slightly nervous, but the force 9 gale soon blew away the fear & the music took over. The tune sets went down particularly well with the shivering crowd, with even the local teenagers discarding their inhibitions and getting down to the “funky” rhythm (audience member quote!!!). The band ended with their grand finale set of Breton dance tunes in a desperate bid to keep both musicians and audience warm.

A great day was had by all in spite of the weather.
