Northumberland Gazette 9 May 2019

“Top quality performers set for a summer of music to suit all tastes....A feast of musical riches....”


Audience Comments

These concerts get better and and better! Such a treat to hear some new and original music played by such amazing performers. (And then there is the setting.....)

I found it really challenging but wouldn’t have missed it for anything. Seeing and hearing John Tomlinson close up like that was astonishing.

The concert last night – FANTASTIC!!!!
(after Spiro’s concert, July 2019)


Appreciate that these concerts introduce us to such a broad variety of musicians and musical genres


We come as often as possible every year (since the concerts began)
