The Bills

The Bills, Swaledale FestivalAs this year’s Swaledale Festival draws to an end with the Festival finale this Saturday 7th June.  We thought it the perfect time to share our highlight of these two weeks – The Bills.

The Bills are a fantastic, five man, acoustic, folk super-group all the way from the west coast of Canada. As part of their UK tour they touched base with us Swaledaleians with a live show and legendary experience at St Andrews Church in Grinton. They certainly didn’t disappoint with their exquisite song-craft, superb arrangements and dynamic live performance.

But, what really topped the night was the after party at the Bridge Inn across the road from the church in Grinton. The Bills joined in with the local folk musicians and soon had the whole pub singing along to tunes till 2am in the morning.

It was a great night that we won’t forget for a while!
