Festival Music 2010

The music of Pilton Festival 2010 was presented on three stages - the Top Parker Stage, Middle Cancer Busking Stage and Bottom Trailer Stage - in Pilton Street throughout the day on Saturday.

The Liquidators

All day Saturday the music came with a wide range of styles/genres and performers aged from 14 to 70, altogether a very inclusive event with something for everyone. On offer was very varied music with traditional, folk, acapella, ska, rock/pop and singer songwriters.

 

Harry HouseagoThis year introduced the Middle Stage Cancer Busking Platform. This is a national campaign in aid of cancer research and supported by stars of the music world, many of whom started their careers busking. It's a very exciting project indeed and more details can be found on www.buskingcancer.co.uk. It is a chance to see amazing raw talent at very close quarters.

 

 

The DambuskersThe headlining acts included ska band The Liquidators (photo top left), 14-year-old Harry Houseago (photo above left), North Devon's Premier Country Dance Band Bloater Town and Great British Eccentric 2009 and singer /songwriter, poet and musician Colin Shaddick. And The Dambuskers (above) stepped in at the last minute to close the day brilliantly on the Top Stage.

 

Josh Price playing Trumpet Voluntary in 2009The Annual Concert of Words and Music in the Church of St Mary in 2010 was on Festival Sunday evening and represented the calm after the storm of Green Man Day. This year it had the theme of 'Man on Earth' with brilliant music and evocative readings on how Man has used and been affected by the Earth.

Here (photo left) is Josh Price, a brilliant young keyboard and trumpet player welcoming the audience back after the interval with a Trumpet Voluntary from the pulpit during the 2009 Summer Concert. Visit the Man on Earth page for more details of the 2010 concert.
