Rattan & Rush,

English folk Delightful 'acoustic tearoom'. Cafe and shop by day - occasional gigs in the evening. VERY limited tickets - sit down sumptuous dinner then excellent music. Last time it was Kristina Olsen - singer + songwriter from California. A lovely lady who generated a fabulous intimate atmosphere with her singing, humour and guitar playing.(Fi Exon)

Various styles from Africa & Balkans - acapella choir Chechelele means 'be happy' - they inspire a sense of fun and excitement in even the smallest audiences in rural North Yorkshire. Most songs are unaccompanied, the occasional stiring percussion number and moving ballad makes for a varied programme.

Small Fest is Best
We run a small music festival at Ingleton in Yorkshire every March which takes place in a large log cabin and we take it over for the weekend. We've workshops, concerts, a songwriting competition, informal music sessions and generally lots of fun. It's entirely voluntary so come along.
