Breeze steals the show at Stradbroke Music Day
More than 300 people attended a new music day in Stradbroke last weekend.
The inaugural, and free, music event, held on the playing fields on Saturday and featured 15 acts, including local and regional artists.
The artists were as rich in talent as they were diverse, ranging from Stradbroke and Laxfield Primary Schools, which opened the event, to parody songwriter Dave Mann, through to rock bands Red Glass, The Gray Wolf Band, as well as local acoustic acts, including Harleston's Breeze Redwine.
“Our headliners Hemingway gave the impression that they are really enjoying life and it reflected in their flowing indie rock set, with their unique sound, as they combined new songs with numbers familiar to many,” said Michael Hugman, one of the organisers.
“Unsurprisingly, Breeze Redwine stole the show.
“Despite boiling conditions, she coolly adapted her own songs to fit her powerful vocals along with resonant guitar work that sounded like a cathedral bell, before performing tracks from her EP, in a style that had star quality running all the way through it.
“Norwich singer/songwriter, Lisa Redford, also delivered an assured selection from her catalogue.”
Radio Stradbroke hosted the event, and is already thinking about next year's event.
The music day replaces Stradisphere.
