Raunds Music Festival 2nd - 5th May 2019

Raunds Music Festival 2nd - 5th May 2019

Thu, 02 May 2019

Raunds Music Festival is a small, friendly festival, now in its 18th year, run entirely by volunteers. Our passion for music means we bring internationally acclaimed folk and roots musicians (including Blair Dunlop, Belshazzar's Feast, Gilmore and Roberts and The Frank Burfitt Band) to play alongside our local community groups (choirs and music groups) in East Northants. Local musicians and singers have opportunities to participate in the informal Song'n'Tune and Sing sessions and there is a Ceilidh. Our festival runs Thursday to Sunday from May 2nd to May 5th 2019. Tickets are available from Raunds Hardware & Pet Supplies, Brook St Newsagents and the Festival Hotline: 07756 015615 or the Raunds Festival website: www.raundsfestival.com where you can get further details of the programme.
