Growing in notoriety and popularity, the Lancaster Music Festival has just been named among the winners in the 2013 Lancaster Tourism Awards. The 5th annual Lancaster Music Festival takes place this weekend, 11th – 13th October. With over 100 performances at over 30 venues, there’s something to meet every taste, whether your passion is blue grass, punk, rock, indie and pretty much everything in between. Most of the shows are free, as are the brochures. The city will indeed be alive with the sound of music.
I was expecting an evening of fine operatic singing. After all, Nicky Spence is hailed as ‘Scotland’s top tenor’ and has been getting some excellent reviews of late. I was not expecting to be so thoroughly entertained by Nicky’s quick wit, humour and engaging repartee. His personality and performance launched the Low Wood Bay Events Calendar beautifully and set the stage for an excellent season of top class entertainment.
