SDK MAI (Live Music Hall), Moscow 2012 guesting with Aquarium – The Boxwood Northumbrian Smallpipes just about holding together in the ambient conditions…
I was delighted to play at the NPS Annual Concert held in the Mining Institute building – well worth a visit if you are in NEWCASTLE
We got to play in Neville Hall houses the memorial to the Institute’s first President, Nicholas Wood, an outstanding Victorian Library resplendent filled with superb stonework, redolent with exquisite carved stone, wood and paintings with a beautifully decorated ceiling, a vast glass roof and filled with furniture designed for the library in 1872. Below the Library is the Edwardian Lecture Theatre, modeled on the Royal Institution in London and constructed in deep red Cuban Mahogany. Wow!
