Borrowdale Johnnny: Show Dates
Borrowdale Johnny Tour :
Northern Village Halls: Autumn/Winter 2007.
'Borrowdale Johnny Show' went out to 16 village halls throughout Cumbria and Durham, from September through to mid December!
Many folks came to see us launch our brand new album 'Borrowdale Johnny' with these very special shows. At most shows, a seated concert presenting a sequence of songs and tunes from the album started the show, telling the story of Borrowdale Johnny's epic journey from Borrowdale and back again.
This was followed by a ceilidh dance which will gave the audience a rousing couple of hours to enjoy themselves on the dance-floor, interspersed with some 'floor spots' from the band, including clog dancing, border pipe playing, and big chorus songs (Including the classic 'Sally Grey') that everyone loved singing along to!
This tour was organised by 'Highlights' and 'Way Out West' rural touring schemes. Our great thanks to Barbara Slack and Bob Pritchard for all their hard work in putting this excellent schedule of dates together! The tour took us to community venues around Cumbria and County Durham; the bed-rock breeding ground of our brand of music, which made it a highly exciting and energising 'down to the roots' tour for us, and our local audiences. We practised hard to make these the best Striding Edge shows ever. As you can see by the comments, we went down a storm on every show, which made us realise that we suceeded!
