Hello everyone, Happy new year and welcome to Striding Edge's 16th year of operation! Despite the national recession 'Edge have been doing business as usual over the last 2 years, including a well-on-average-for-us of 54 gigs for 2009. (While we're on the topic of gigs, I did a count and discovered that we've played a total of 618 shows in total up to the end of 2009!) So many great nights, so many happy memories...and we already have a good core of gigs that suggests this year will be no different! So thank you very much to all our clients who not only have faith in us, but have faith in live music; we appreciate your business at such a time.

I'm here at Edge HQ preparing for the new year's operations. I'm aware this is the time when a lot of folks will be contactiong us for shows: I look forward to hearing from you! A special deal we are now offering new clients for 2010 is '3 copies for £30' of our latest album Borrowdale Johnny: A great way of spreading the word with family and friends about your forthcoming night with us: More details on contact>> (Please note that you can also continue getting a small taster of us on the audio page>>)
