Ride2Stride - the Settle-Carlisle Walking Festival


Music 2012

Throughout the Festival week pubs along the railway line will be buzzing with music and song.

Anastice Dingle

Each day sees a different venue hosting some of the best folk musicians from the region. On most days the music will run through the afternoon and late into the evening, with breaks.

Admission to these sessions is free, but there will be regular bucket collections to help meet the musicians' expenses.

The music sessions will continue long past the departure of the last train - it's your responsibility to make sure you get home!

Many of the pubs offer accommodation, so why not book yourself an overnight room and enjoy the music all evening.

Amongst the musicians appearing (in no particular order) are:

Chris MilnerPeter Taylor;  Jeff Wright;  Alan Holmes;  Andy Clayton;  Peter & Maggie Coates;  Strid;  Diana Denney;  Bill AdairMarie Little;  Peter & Tamara Freeman;  Paddy Hannon;  Jerry Dorset;  Frank & Ian;  Haws Draws;  Mike Moran;  Nic Dow.

Music sessions organised by the Three Peaks Folk Club. For more information contact Jeff Wright at: rustichubby@live.co.uk
