Buttermere Concert

Striding Edge concerts are a feast of colourfull music drawn from our roots in the Cumbrian tradition: Soulful ballads with four-part harmony vocals; Lively jigs, reels and hornpipes on a remarkable array of instruments.

  • A concert usually comprises of two 50-minute sets.
  • For festivals, we can play single sets of 40 minutes to 1 hour.
  • A concert is either fully amplified, or completely acoustic for a small intimate show.
  • A concert can also be staged with a ceilidh dance. Start with a 50 minute concert: After a break, follow on with an hour’s ceilidh.
