Summer 2022

Phew what a scorcher! We were lucky with the weather this year with one of the hottest, driest summers on record. An unintended beneficial consequence of global warming?

Our MD Mr Hignett went even redder than usual with the merest glimpse of the sun.

We had a busy start to our summer fundraising campaign with some lovely gigs at Beamish, the Northumberland County Show and Bywell Hall to celebrate the Queens Jubilee.

We had the honour of opening the very first ‘Music by the Riverside’ event playing down by the River Tyne at Prudhoe Riverside Park.

Sadly Mr Blue Skies himself, Mr Mooney couldn’t be present as hoped but at least he ordered up a lovely sunny day.

Organised by Prudhoe Community Partnership this day of music was a great success and will hopefully become an annual event.

Many thanks to Moira Woolridge for taking some fantastic photos of the band.

We are due to restart rehearsals in September so it’s a good time to welcome any new members. If anyone is out there who fancies playing in a lovely friendly band, dust off that instrument and come along.

Dates and venues or all on the website calendar.
