Break­ing the seren­ity at Bon­nie Doon Mu­sic Fes­ti­val

North East Tourist News - - BONNIE DOON / YARCK -

THIRD time run­ning and it’s on with the show for Chris Wil­son and his Bon­nie Doon Mu­sic and Buskers Fes­ti­val to be held on Fe­bru­ary 19, 20 and 21.

How­ever, for Chris the for­mat has changed this year and the fes­ti­val – with some huge band names re­turn­ing this year – will ba­si­cally be a one day mu­sic fair.

“To keep costs to a min­i­mum and to at­tract more peo­ple, I have kept the fes­ti­val to the Satur­day only, with a one day charge, but still some great per­form­ers en­ter­tain­ing on three stages through­out the day and night,” Chris said.

The Fri­day night will be an open stage for any­one who wants to come and ‘jam’.

“Satur­day will see per­for­mances by Rat­tlin’ Cane, Stag Hens and The Hol­lands along with many of last year’s per­form­ers com­ing back – just be­cause they love it,” Chris said.

Apart from the main stage there will be coun­try mu­sic and line danc­ing in the recre­ation hall and the ‘walk up’ stage where per­form­ers just come on in, put their names on the board and play for 15-20 min­utes.

This year a poet’s cor­ner will also be in­tro­duced, par­tic­u­larly over Sun­day break­fast.

Sun­day will again see some great per­form­ers on stage, but this day will again be for free – just come on down and en­joy the va­ri­ety of mu­sic and per­form­ers.

Camp­ing will be avail­able but must be booked ahead of time.
