Denholm stage is set for bands to bloom in Garden music festival

DENHOLM is ready to rock as a top-notch line-up of bands take centre stage at tomorrow’s 11th F in the Garden music festival.

Held at the Fox and Hounds Inn, the annual event looks set to get off on a high note with festival debutants The Damned Youth, who comprise some lads from the village. They will be performing their own material as well as cover songs. Next up, and also making their first festival appearance, are covers band Dark Horse, whose line-up consists of three well-known local musicians and drummer Les Jarvis, for whom it is his first-ever gig.

Making a welcome return to F in the Garden are SHE with a wide range of power pop covers, while the third outfit making their debut are The Joe Mangels, from Berwick and Wooler, whose “punked-up” cover versions of easy-listening songs have already caught the ear of music fans around the region. Under the Covers, a six-piece with two female vocalists and a female drummer, will follow and have promised a memorable 40-minute set.

Finally, Shtumm will once again bring the curtain down on the festival with a rousing mix of rock and well-known covers, and fans can rest assured that tomorrow’s set will de different from their Party on the Pitch show the following Saturday.

The music gets under way at 1.30pm, admission is free, and there will be three bars and a barbecue all afternoon. Festival-goers are reminded that carry-outs will not be permitted.
