Moonbeams March Folk Weekend
Folk and acoustic music lovers are in for a seasonal treat at Driffield’ s Bell Hotel when it is taken over for a ‘Winter Gathering of Folk’ hosted by Moonbeams.
The 3nd Moonbeams March Folk Weekend will take place on the evening of Friday 6th March and all day Saturday 7th March 2015 using the hotel function rooms for its concerts and its bar areas for singarounds and sessions.
Moonbeams music concerts have been held regularly at The Bell for over six years. Organiser Leila Cooper simply can’t wait for her summer event (Moonbeams Wold Top Festival held each July at Hunmanby’s Wold Top Brewery) so has organised this special event for her own enjoyment as much as everyone else’s.
She explained: “Our summer festival is such a lovely occasion -so I wanted to do something earlier in the year as well. It had to be somewhere warm and cosy so we chose our usual town venue. March seems to be a great time to do it-something to look forward to when there is little else happening musically.”
The line up for 2015 so far:
Blackbeard’s Tea Party * Bob Fox * Les Barker * Blair Dunlop
David Ward Maclean * Andy Stones * Plumhall
The Nick Rooke Band * Carol Henderson * Allan Wilkinson
Rebekah Findlay * Dogfinger * Dan Walsh
