Dan Walsh and Alistair Anderson are part way through a Highlights rural tour taking in Northumberland, Cumbria and Co. Durham and the audience reaction so far has been very enthusiastic. Most shows have sold out.
A sample of audience comments from the first night in Wooler, Northumberland, showed people’s appreciation of being part of a community and being brought together by music. These are just some replies when asked how the event made them feel:
Uplifted. Fantastic enthusiastic musicians
Excited. Thrilled. Happy, invigorated. They are utterly brilliant and uplifting.
Stunning evening. Part of the community connected to such quality music – great!
Happy to be able to enjoy such talented world class musicians in our local area
Like we belong and celebrate our culture. The music is the expression of local culture and this was a masterclass
Happy and energised listening to live unamplified music is great..
Elated. I am delighted to hear such wonderful exponents of our local musical culture. It makes our cultural community stronger.
Happy to be here. Everyone looks happy.
ACE! Its fun..
