Two young musical groups are due to perform at Mindrum Gardens, with proceeds going to their Scotland Tour and the 2020 Children’s Countryside Day.
On Sunday 30th June, The Northumbrian Ranters and the Young Pipers Group will be filling Mindrum Gardens, in North Northumberland, with an afternoon of traditional music. Gates open at 3PM, offering visitors the chance to picnic in the garden followed by an open-air concert starting at 4:15PM.
Aged between 10 and 18 years old, the Northumbrian Ranters have toured both the UK and abroad and are talented ambassadors for the music of Northumberland. From keyboards to pipes, guitars to harps and fiddles, the Ranters are known for an excellent display of music from the county.
The Northumbrian Young Pipers Group are a group of young musicians with unique talents. They have played across Northumberland and regularly meet to play together. The Young Pipers Group will be joining the Northumbrian Ranters for what will be a tremendous end of year performance.
Commenting ahead of the day, Tom Fairfax, Piper for the Northumbrian Pipers Society, said:
“On behalf of the society, we are extremely excited for this afternoon of music in a fantastic setting. It really is great to have two gifted musical groups come together, and all at such a young age too.”
Donations are welcome on the door, and all proceeds will be going towards to the forthcoming Northumbrian Ranters tour to Scotland and to the Glendale Agricultural Society’s 2020 Children’s Countryside Day.
Expressing thanks, Rachael Tait, Event Manager for the Children’s Countryside Day, said:
“I cannot thank Tom enough for choosing to donate a section of the proceedings to our next Children’s Countryside Day in 2020. The Northumbrian Pipers are regular exhibitors at this event each year, teaching children about the Northumbrian Pipers Society and the art of music.
“The Children’s Countryside Day can only go ahead with the donations and support from people across Glendale and further afield, so we would like to send out deepest thanks for his continued support and we are very much looking forward to the concert.”
