After the huge success of Deloraine Stringfest 2014, the follow up festival will soon be upon us.  You may have noticed the crew has found a home in the old Harris building.  This has been most generously donated by the Durham family.  If you’ve not been down there to have a look, you’re most welcome to visit when they are open, this is of course subject to the volunteers having the time to spend helping at what they have christened their Stringfest International HQ. 

The highlight event this year will be Heartstrings Quartet.  

“A dream quartet - the sweetest and most exciting music to emerge from the British Isles for a long time. Matching virtuosity with sheer good taste, this album of traditional and original music pours joyfully from the speakers... amazing, majestic, delightful" DIRTY LINEN (USA) “Bravos Award 2009” TRAD MAGAZINE (France)

This festival is Meander Valley’s Community Event of the Year 2015. 

 Once again, Deloraine has managed to showcase not only the talent of our craftsmen and the beauty of our timbers, but the magic of the musicians attracted to the sounds of these instruments.
