  • Festival Friday: Wyeside

    Festival Friday: Wyeside

    Hereford's Wyeside Music Festival has been postponed after its licencing notices were pulled down.

    The organiser thinks it was done deliberately and he's now had to scale back the live music event to just one day in August.

    The planning notices had been removed before they'd been displayed for the legal 28 consecutive days, so no licence could be issued.

    The organiser, Steve Symonds, says by holding a one-day festival in August he'll save some money - but it could still cost his family twenty thousand pounds.

    The festival will now take place on August 21.

    The Stranglers will still be playing but The Wurzels and The Animals with Spencer Davies can't make the re-arranged date.

    Festival Friday: Ross Live!

    The chairman of a music festival in Ross-on-Wye says there isn't the demand to keep going.

    Ross Live! was set up after the collapse of the town's International Festival.

    Its chairman, Robin Symonds, says one-off events might be the way forward.

    Introducing... Album Of The Week

    Former Malvern resident and internationally acclaimed violinist Nigel Kennedy launched his new album on Monday.

    Shhh! features a lot of his new compositions plus a version of Nick Drake's 1971 song River Man, featuring Boy George.

    Kennedy shot to fame at the age of 16 for his unique style - playing Bach, Vivaldi and Mozart before launching into renditions of tracks by Jimi Hendrix, the Doors and Kate Bush!
