Event 11

Sunday 16th February 12 noon - East Riding Cafe Bar

See some of the finest young, emerging artists around today.

Cream Teas

Cream Tees are a youth folk band established by Music at the Heart of Teesdale (M@HoT) in 2011 as part of a mission to research and revive the lost folk song and dance traditions of Upper Teesdale. With a one-size fits all mentality, the band is home to musicians ranging from ages 9 - 19, and they meet once a week after school to learn and play folk music together, supported by student tutors from Newcastle University's Traditional Music BA.

Kirsty McLachlan

Kirsty is a young singer-songwriter based in the northeast. She has already recorded her first album and makes frequent appearances at local open mic nights.

Arthur Coates

Arthur has been playing Fiddle since the age of 7, growing up in rural Aberdeenshire. He was later inspired to take up the Guitar by John Coletta (The Humpff Family), and at the age of 12 Arthur was awarded a scholarship to attend the ‘Aberdeen City Music School’ to study Fiddle and Guitar.
