So it's kinda convenient we've bumped the end-of-term party forwards to the 21st July!! Anne, John and I did the Saturday concert at Tynemouth Castle last year...(and despite the fact that John was sporting a plaster cast and didn't do a whole lot of dancing in the aisles) it was well worth the entry fee. Anyone up for a repeat visit this year (packing a picnic and possibly umbrellas of course!) should check out the following......
Details of the concert at Tynemouth Castle on the 14th July
The Legendary Mory Kante
Mory Kante was the first African artist to sell over a million singles and his number one hit 'Yeke Yeke' remains the most successful African song of all time. Hailing from Guinea in West Africa, Mory is one of the very few African singers to have a hit record in Europe. His live show will see eleven people performing on stage as he showcases his latest album and the songs that have given him great success and respect over the years. In the stunning setting of Tynemouth Priory, the acoustic sounds of Mory Kante will make this an atmospheric night to remember.
The Alex Wilson Salsa Orchestra
Alex Wilson's style of salsa will definitely grab your attention as he along with his 12-piece Salsa Orchestra belts out the tunes to get you moving.
Boys of the Lough
This band have completed over 60 tours of the USA and received 2 Grammy nominations for their work. They perform traditional Celtic music using the fiddle, flute, accordion and pipes to great effect. Hugely respected on both sides of the Atlantic, Boys of the Lough, have made over 20 recordings and have a wealth of work to choose from when they open the show at the Mouth of the Tyne evening concert.
