Sunday Teatime Concert on the Staithe Sunday 15:45 - 18:00
Our finale concert celebrates the incredible young talent nurtured by Bob Butterfield, with children from Seton Community Primary School, Staithes. With funding from the Staithes Festival, Bob, a peripatetic music teacher, has worked with these young children who, with no formal music lessons or individual teaching, but through whole class teaching, have reached a high standard. Do come along to support the Youth Workshop Band and hear them showcase their newly acquired skills.
There is more youthful talent on show with the Esk Valley Big Band a group from Whitby Music Centre again supported by Bob Butterfield. We are delighted to welcome them for a return visit to the Staithes Festival. They will be followed the Best of the Buskers.
Next, the home-grown talent of Dire Staithes, Staithes very own band made up of Filip Cieslik, Alan Young, Adam Clark and John Hamlin who will be playing music from Fats Waller to the Beatles to Chris Isaak - expect an action packed set which will have you up on your feet and singing along.
Then headlining the 2017 Staithes Festival Teatime Concert is the amazing Duncan McFarlane Band
Formed in 2000 for a one-off pub gig at the Otley Festival, dMb ‘blew the place apart’ and have never looked back. They’ve played festivals at Beverley, Ely, Shepley, Sidmouth and Shrewsbury with their heady blend of traditional folk, driving rhythm and vibrant energy. Radio 2 said of them: ‘A real master class in just how to do the folk-rock thing right!’
