Great things to look forward to at Coquetdale Music Trust with some very top musicians performing here this Spring/Summer (see events page on website) including Chris Stout and Catriona Mackay,fiddle virtuoso Pete Clark and Gregor Lowery on accordion (The Trooters), Ross Couper and Tom Oakes(Shetland and Devon), our own local Tom O’Donnell singer songwriter, Stuart Hardie and Andy Craig doing a music and photography show and many more. We’ve had some fantastic concerts already including Earl Grey and The Charwallahs who were very well liked with their mix of music and other wonderful concerts too.
Please help us to increase our mailing list by getting your friends to register on the mailing list on the website or by leaving details with Lesley as the more folks we contact then the bigger chance of an even larger audience. Adam and Ally are growing the recording studio. They have been assisted by outside hire from well-known local guitarist Iain Stevenson and we are proud that the premises were used for recording “BBC CHOIR OF THE YEAR” and “FOLKESTRA” recently with great results along with many other bands. The new Neumann microphones and others add greatly to the specification list. The Coquetdale Ranters are looking for any more musicians of any standard or age to join them on a Wednesday night and Rothbury Highland Pipe Band continue to use the premises and are always on the lookout for more recruits on a Thursday night.
The lambs are in the fields and the Daffodils are blooming and soon the heady days of summer will be upon us. We look forward to seeing you at a trust event soon. A new spring/ Summer Concerts leaflet is available at local outlets and Tully’s Coffee shop still kindly act as a ticket sales office in the centre of Rothbury for our events. You can also leave a message for tickets with Lesley on 01669 622367 or on the website contact page. The Centre is available for hire by anyone for any reasonable purpose subject to availability. Have a great spring and summer. Hope to see you all soon at Coquetdale Music Trust.
