Mu­sic by the Sea, re­turns to Aldeburgh this sum­mer with a great line-up of live mu­sic at Kings Field in the town.

The fes­ti­val was held from 2012 on the seafront at Aldeburgh and was re­placed by Thor­pe­fest, a tick­eted fes­ti­val at Thor­pe­ness Coun­try Club. It’s the brain­child of Peter Os­borne, man­ag­ing direc­tor, coastal op­er­a­tions, for the TA Ho­tel Col­lec­tion. he said: “We’re de­lighted to once again be hold­ing Mu­sic by the Sea back in Aldeburgh this year thanks to the kind sup­port of Aldeburgh Town Coun­cil. We look for­ward to get­ting ev­ery­one up danc­ing and en­joy­ing them­selves.”

Mu­sic by the Sea raises money for char­ity, this year for In­spire Suffolk, which works with young peo­ple who need help and op­por­tu­ni­ties to get back into em­ploy­ment and fur­ther train­ing. Its per­sonal de­vel­op­ment pro­grammes change lives, tack­ling a range of is­sues that young peo­ple are fac­ing. Stu­dents learn new skills and qual­i­ties, and build con­fi­dence and self–es­teem.


Colin & Roger – present a cel­e­bra­tion of the very pop­u­lar mu­sic of The Everly Broth­ers. A great pro­gramme of some of the iconic hits from the late 50’s & the 60’s recorded by one of the fore­most Bands from that era. They are both very ex­pe­ri­enced pro­fes­sional mu­si­cians, who have worked in many top Bands over the last few decades. They de­cided to com­bine their un­doubted tal­ents to pay trib­ute to one of the most iconic Bands from the golden age when pop mu­sic was in its in­fancy.


Words and Mu­sic’ is a live en­ter­tain­ment duo, formed by broth­ers Gra­ham and Steven Dye. They take a trip down mem­ory lane, cov­er­ing clas­sic songs from the 60s. Since 1990, the act has en­joyed much suc­cess, play­ing at many live mu­sic venues across the coun­try, also work­ing on cruise ships around the world, and has of­ten taken part in ma­jor events, such as BBC Tele­vi­sions’ Chil­dren In Need and live cov­er­age of The Queens’ Golden Ju­bilee, and in 2007, to cel­e­brate the 40th an­niver­sary of The Bea­tles’ Sgt Pep­pers al­bum, were in­vited to per­form ev­ery track live on stage, and live on air, for BBC Ra­dio.
