Herne Hill Music Fest WEEKEND RECAP! The Secular, the Sacred & everything-in-between!

 

We're working on a Festival Music Trail! Progress so far:

 

The Festival got off to a flying start on Friday at a sold-out Prince Regent with Django jazz from locals The Crispy Hot Club followed by ace blues stalwarts Steve Morrison and Alan Glen.

 

 

Saturday a super busy day - Fest's busiest - beginning with The Calton String Quartet at the Carnegie Library in Herne Hill Road for string classics at lunchtime and snacks laid on by Carnegie Friends.

 

 

Countdown to the Herne Hill Music Festival - starts Friday!

We've begun the countdown to the Herne Hill Music Festival! It all kicks off this Friday, October 11th with Blues & Gypsy Jazz Night at The Prince Regent featuring Alan Glen and Steve Morrison! It's going to be a 9 day festival of classical, jazz, folk and other "lighter" music ... which, according to HHMF founder Alan Taylor, basically means it isn't a rock/pop fest. But there's loads on for every preference and across a range of easily accessible venues - folk legend Wizz Jones at The Prince Regent (last year we featured a jazz legend, Stan Tracey), a Mozart opera at Methodist Hall, a Choral Evensong + other free events, Family Concerts, jazz gigs at The Cambria, our Composition Competition (as close to classical X-Factor as you're going to get!) and a Baroque Ball at St Faith's to close the Fest on October 19th. If you haven't had a flyer through the letterbox, you can usually pick one up at Brockwell Lido, or check out Festival listings online: www.hernehillfestival.org
