Dispatches from the road from our wayfaring travelers.
The performance we saw last night was so inspiring! It took place at the Stocksfield Institute and Community center. Several groups performed – children, teens, college students and a wonderful artist named Tim Dalling.
We had made friends with Year 3′s from Broomley school (7 and 8 year olds) earlier in the day. They created a wonderful set of songs with Tim Dalling that lifted us up! Tim is a wonderful musician and teacher and really worked very well with the students.

After their rehearsal, we walked the students back to school playing fiddle and harmonica along the countryside, what a treat!
In the evening, the Broomley students really brought some wonderful energy, joy and spirit to their music! The Stocksfield Stompers performed as well, they’re brilliant!
Jason and I were invited to play a few tunes, we played Snake Baked a Hoecake and our friends sang along. We also played Spotted Pony!
We’re hanging out at The Sage today, we’ve jammed, seen some wonderful perfomances on the concourse (the lobby) and had a musical exchange with our friend Jenny. She shared several songs and tunes for us to bring back home…
We’re off to stay at Ridley Place tonight in Hexham and immerse ourselves in the festival.
On the road again…
