For anyone interested in harps, blues guitar, fingerstyle guitar, highland pipes, whistles, fiddles and songwriting, there'll be workshops at the Berwick Gathering Festival from all the relevant people i.e. Alison Kinnaird, Mike Whellans, Martin Simpson, Mike Katz, Alasdair White etc. There'll also be a Northumbrian Ceilidh on the Friday night with Fiddler's Elbow.
After returning from their US tour, Battlefield Band will be heading straight down to the South of England to play on the Acoustic Stage of the 2005 Glastonbury Festival. The band will be appearing on Friday 24th June, the same day as Paul Brady, Henry McCullough and fellow Temple Records artist Mike Whellans - 'The One Man Blues Band'. If you've been lucky enough to get tickets for this years festival then this is obviously the correct tent to spend your Friday afternoon in... ... see you there.
