Cockermouth Ukuleles:

We’re sure you will enjoy our enthusiasm and love for what we do which usually comes over in out performances. We play for charity events too, raising money for worthy local causes. Feel free to have a dance if our entertainment inspires you to do so...."

Folk Cumbria:
Folk Cumbria is a loose collection of musicians crafting and playing at music events around Cumbria and the North West. "We're very happy to be playing for a National Trust event again, having previously played sessions at Bark House by Ashness Bridge. Prepare to sing along and bring your best dancing wellies for this breezy session with a beautiful view."

JP Worsfold:
Singer songwriter of contemporary folk songs inspired by his life working as a ranger in the Lake District. They are emotional, reflective, contemplative songs of connection, joy and belonging.

Merry Assembly with Dave Camlin:
Merry Assembly is a celebration of everyday creativity where everyone can contribute to the entertainment, by sharing a song, poem, story, joke, dance or other creative offering on a chosen theme (July = Sun; August = Summer). Hosted by singer / song-writer Dave Camlin with the Earthsong ‘living installation’ of willow critters and human singers from Sing Owt! and Wild Chorus community choirs. Based on the traditional Cumbrian ‘Merry Neet’ - book a floor spot, join in with the singalongs, or just soak up the friendly community vibe.
