A dozen venues around Masham are alive with music of all sorts to listen to and play in. With further performances in the weeks surrounding this weekend, Masham is the place to be for a celebration of all types of music in all types of places with the stunning Yorkshire Dales on your doorstep.
The highlight, and the inspiration for the festival, is a concert at Masham Town Hall by Lindisfarne, a band on their 50th anniversary tour and with longstanding Masham connections from their earliest days. Other performances and activities include venues such as Masham pubs, hotels, churches and community venues, including Swinton Bivouac and The Terrace Restaurant & Bar.
A jazz pianist singer / songwriter from the North East, Jen Stevens has been compared to such musical talents as Kate Bush, Tori Amos and Regina Spektor. Tuck into a stunning collection of Northern European inspired dishes in the restaurant, brave the elements and settle for the evening under blankets on the terrace, or opt for the surroundings of the bar and try a cocktail or two whilst enjoying an evening of live music.
Live music starts at 7pm. To book a table, please call 01765 680900.
