A UNIQUE classic blues band, an acoustic guitar-playing duo and a popular 11- piece brass and percussion ensemble.
That is who you will find providing the musical backdrop to a summer’s afternoon over the next two weekends as the ‘Music Outside’ summer programme of free concerts in the Castle Grounds continues.
Audiences can enjoy relaxing in the park to the sounds of 58 Blues Band on Saturday August 12. This will be followed by Brindley Hunt on Saturday August 19 and Liquid Brass on Sunday August 20.
58 Blues Band play their own versions of classic blues tracks in their own spontaneous way. Inspired by artists from both past and present, they are one of the most exciting and gritty blues bands around.
Brindley Hunt is an acoustic duo featuring two very experienced musicians with sparkling harmonies and high-class accompaniment on acoustic guitars. They enjoy singing harmonies in the style of The Beach Boys, The Beatles, Crowded House and other vocal bands. They perform covers of the best songs from the past five decades as well as their own finely-crafted songs.
Their performance will be followed by something altogether different on Sunday August 20 when Liquid Brass takes to the bandstand for a guaranteed mix of traditional instrumentation with technological wizardry making an entirely original type of sound.
The band perform a range of musical styles to suit all tastes including swing, pop, rock, classical and more, creating a unique party atmosphere to brighten even a grey day.
All artists will be performing regularly on the day, between 1pm and 4pm. Please check the website for any changes to the programme at: www.tamworthartsandevents.co.uk.
Organised by Tamworth Borough Council’s Arts & Events team, the annual Bandstand Concerts tradition has seen the historic stage coming to life throughout the season with music and entertainment for all tastes.
This year’s programme has been brought under the Music Outside element of the Arts in Unusual Spaces initiative. To maximise opportunities for people to entertain and be entertained, the initiative is support by Arts Council England.
So far, the programme has been popular with both young and old, showcasing crowd-pleasing bands and vocalists. Don’t miss out on these last three acts for August.
All performances are free of charge and subject to weather conditions.
