The inaugural Knutsford Music Festival took place this weekend (23-25 June) with over forty acts performing across the three days.
The event, coordinated by the Town Council, featured an array of genres and artists performing in bars, restaurants and venues such as the Market Hall and St John’s Church.
Three anchor events organised by the Town Council were supported by the business community who organised numerous performances.
On Friday evening award winning Blues singer Rebecca Downes headlined an intimate set at the Brook St Club with support from Rick Whitehead and Ash Sherlock. Saturday saw 90s stars Dodgy headline in St John’s Church supported by Knutsford’s own Abigail Chetham with Freja Frances and Kye Jones. Sunday saw an evening of classical music with pianist Adrian Lord, Knutsford string-quartet Fiddlesticks and the Knutsford Catenian and Friends Male Voice Choir.
“The buzz and the lovely atmosphere the music created in the town was pure magic.” said one festival goer, whilst another told us ” [There was] so much going on at different venues. It had an Edinburgh fringe festival feel about it!”
