Folk Music Invites ‘Folk’ to Silent Valley
12 June 2014 16:41
Folk music lovers from across the country are invited to NI Water’s ‘Music in the Park’ event on Sunday 22 June from 2-5pm, at Silent Valley Mountain Park in Kilkeel.
The event, organised by the company to attract visitors to the picturesque mountainous Park, will host the brilliant Dandy Horses, an energetic contemporary folk band.
Anna Marshall, organiser of the event comments:
“This is the third year we have held this music at the park event in Silent Valley and due to its resounding success, we have organised three events this summer, 22 June, 13 July and 31 August.
“The event will be very much about relaxation, there is no better way to enjoy a lazy Sunday than sitting back and appreciating the scenery while being serenaded.
“Many spectators at previous events simply relaxed with their family, picnicked and enjoyed the sweet sounds of the music. This year, we have the Ulster Wildlife Trust who will be offering environmental craft activities for the little ones and various food stalls offering everything from burgers to ice cream.
“We look forward to welcoming back many of the same visitors and some new faces to Silent Valley.”
NI Water has recently improved some of the Parks’ facilities, including new walking trails. Previous investment has included an enhanced playpark, improved toilet facilities and new displays within the visitors centre.
On Sunday 13th July we will welcome the Lee Hedley blues band and on Sunday 31st August, the Sandrunners, a country and bluegrass band.
