Thanks to our Cashback for Creativity funding this year, we were delighted and excited to be able to stage the Summer Daze at Harestanes Music Festival on Saturday the 29th of June. Alongside our partners at Borders Young Creatives we’ve put a new and unique boutique youth music and family event into the heart of the Borders.

SUMMER DAZE POSTER

We thought we’d share some pics from the concert, to give you an idea of what a great day it was, so a very special thank you to Jasmine Lowerie for capturing so many great moments during the afternoon, and a big thanks to all the staff at Harestanes for making sure it was a great day’s music, but especially big thanks to all of the brilliant musicians who kept up entertained all afternoon.

RIDDELL FIDDLES OPEN THE SHOW WITH A SET OF GREAT TUNES..

The Bannerfield Buskers raised some well earned cash and very generously donated it towards Sound Cycle’s new Bursary fund!
