Musicport on Tour

For the 5 days following the main festival @ Whitby Pavilion Musicport in October goes on tour to the local villages with a diverse range of acts. All the concerts are free entry “pay what you feel” events which in previous years have attracted large and appreciative audiences. With additional pop-up gigs by Old Time Rags & Stranger On The Saw happening during the daytimes & all compered by the inestimable Paul Armfield it should be a week of magical experiences in unexpected places.

This year’s tour

Friday 25th 7.30pm Poor Nameless Boy (Canada) @ St Oswalds Church Lythe
Indie folk artist Poor Nameless Boy with his band on first date of their UK tour. “Pop hooks hidden in melodies you can drink your coffee to. Folk lyrics to drive you to the contemplative.
