Plus On Tour to villages October 20 th -24 th

From its first “one-off “festival to celebrate the Millennium in 2000 until the present Musicport has succeeded in bringing some of the finest musicians from around the world to the Yorkshire coast. From the Buena Vista Social Club to Hugh Masekela from Courtney Pine to Richard Hawley it’s been a fascinating journey of discovery for the organisers and the audience as highest quality music from lands both far away and much close to home have graced the 5 stages of this unique and friendly indoor festival.

 

Marking its 20th anniversary Festival Director Jim McLaughlin, who has programmed the festival since its inception, was keen to bring back some of the acts who have helped create the festival’s ethos and reputation in what will no doubt end up being seen as a

Best Of Musicport“ line-up. 
 
 
“ We think this line-up will ensure a non-stop party all weekend “ he adds.

 

From the 16-piece young multicultural band from Sweden Varldens who prove that music transcends any man-made barriers, to the sublime pairing of Senegal’s top Kora player Sekou Keita with Catrin Finch the Welsh harpist ….from the bagpipe driven sounds of  The Peatbog Faeries from The Isle Of Skye to the hypnotic sounds of the Western Sahara with Aziza Brahim.from The Communards singer Sarah Jane Morris with her celebration of the songs of John Martyn to the sparkling thought provoking spoken words of poet Lemn Sissay….. From the still immense reggae sounds & message of  veterans Misty In Roots to the life-affirming sunny sounds of  Marseille’s  Moussu T lei Joven from Irish legend Andy Irvine  to the glorious African sounds of  Orchestre Les Mangelepa  from Kenya…..all in all it promises to be a fitting celebration of 20 years whilst artists from far closer to home such as Martin Stephenson , Katie Spencer,  The Lake Poets ,Old Time Rags & The Joshua Burnell Band prove the festival transcends geography   and young musicians such as Don’t Feed The Peacocks (all member of National Youth Folk Ensemble)  prove  that age is no barrier either.
