Otley Food and Drink Festival 17th July

We are really pleased to announce that we will be performing at this year’s Otley Food and Drink Festival in Otley Market Square from 1pm this Sunday – 17th July. Please pop by and say ALOHA! We’ll be performing some upbeat songs guaranteed to get you singing along – but we’re only on for an hour so grab yourself some lovely food and come and watch us!

I’d also like to say a HUGE thanks to everyone who came to play and support us at the Kirkstall Festival this year – we managed to dodge the torrential downpours and had an excellent day! Thanks to Alan and the Kirkstall Festival team for having us – we hope to see you again next year!

Otley Walking Festival – Follow The Strings!

It doesn’t seem a whole year since we did a musical walk around Otley pubs for the annual Otley Walking Festival! But here we are – only 2 days away from this fantastic event!

Join us from 7:30pm on FRIDAY 1st JULY outside The Woolpack Studios, where we will sing and play for you and then guide you on to The Horse and Farrier and on to the final destination: the riverside gardens at The Fleece.

It is not a strenuous walk and will be a lot of fun! Expect lots of singing along and good times:-)

Hope to see you there!
