We are very excited to be planning our CD Launch Tour concerts!
The first will be in St Mary’s Heritage Centre in Gateshead – how could it be anywhere else? St Mary’s is the spiritual home of Bottle Bank Band, not only because of its proximity to the old Bottle Bank itself but also through the support the venue has continually shown for the band. We are delighted to launch our CD here – it is going to be a very special event.
Then we return to Allendale Village Hall for our second concert. The band has some great associations with Allendale, not least our connection with the SNAP projects on which Stewart taught after Sophy’s sister Emily was unable to continue. On the first project with Emily was a rather talented young fiddle player, our very own David Jones. SNAP recorded a CD for the third project in Allendale Village Hall, with Tony Davis, who has now recorded Bottle Bank Band at Cluny Studios – full circle!
Our final concert will be in Gallery 45 in the beautiful Northumbrian village of Felton. Gallery 45 will be a wonderful venue for an acoustic concert, with a lovely atmosphere and we are grateful to Jane and Mary for hosting our event there.
All the details of the concerts can be found on our Live Dates page. Tickets are now available so please go ahead and book yours now!
