There was good music, good weather and good food at the second Hexfest held recently. There was a morning coffee concert given by the Kenwood-Reasbeck Duo – oboe and piano. This was followed by a lunchtime concert given by Aires and Gracenotes a trio from Leeds. Both concerts were of excellent quality. Of equal excellence was the lunch, supplied by Angie’s Cafe.
All day music was provided at the Dell Cafe. The cafe was busy all day – thanks are given to Janet and her assistants. There was variety of music, including folk singing, popular music on the saxophone, a jazz duo, gypsy music by Gypsy Martin, popular classics on the piano/violin and also piano solos by the talented sisters, Clara and Carmen.
The day was sandwiched between two events at the Junction. On the Friday night there was celebration and on the Saturday evening there was a young people’s event in the Junction yard.
All the events were well attended. Plans are already being made for next year. It is hoped to extend the scope of Hexfest, building on the experience and success of the first two. New venues and local talent will be searched for.
