Make Music Day

We are really pleased that our musical friends Kiddars Luck and Hop, Skiffle & Jump will be with us as part of this year’s annual Make Music Day, for relaxed acoustic sessions playing in the Courtyard (weather dependant).

Expect to hear some of the most experienced folk singers and musicians in the North East, as they bring with them local songs and tunes about life in the North East.

Make Music Day is a celebration of music making around the world. Every year people and organisations from 1,000 towns and cities in 120 countries create events to share their music. All Make Music Day events are free to watch, so please drop by anytime for our own Make Music Day at the Heritage Centre.

Hop, Skiffle & Jump are the North East’s leading skiffle band. Playing authentic 50s songs they tell the story of how skiffle changed the world of popular music. Led by well known folk singer and guitarist Ken Tonge, their show recreates the lively, fun, join-in spirit of music in the late 50s. Ken is accompanied by Julie on fiddle, William on tea chest bass, Fred on guitar, Alison on washboard and another Alison dancing to their music. Expect to do a bit of singing along, listening to some funny anecdotes, joining the band table banging, foot stamping, skat singing and hand clapping for their finale, “Mama don’t allow”!

Kiddars Luck all hail from the North East of England and specialise in traditional music from the region. They also write their own songs and tunes. They have been singing and playing for more than 25 years but recently have come together in a newly formed ‘Kiddars Luck’ specialising in 3 part harmony singing. They have performed for community groups and at local festivals including the Beamish Museum King Coal Celebration, Harvest Festival and Georgian Celebration, The Woodhorn Mining Museum, Tanfield Railway, The Tommy Armstrong Society and the Land of Oak and Iron.

They are also long standing members of the ‘Cloth Cap Temperance Ban
The event runs between 12:00 and 15:00 and is free to attend
