The ever-popular Music Day in Dalwood, now in its sixth year, attracted music lovers from far and wide on Saturday, July 1.

There were four venues with musicians and some 200 singers, including local talent and internationally known artists.

The performances included popular tunes, ’60s hits and classical pieces, folk, jazz and buskers.

The Axe Valley Community Choir, under the direction of Edward Jacobs, gave a spirited performance.

A spokesman said: “There was a Gershwin concert sung by Laura Collins, whose beautiful voice charmed the packed house.

“She was supported by the incredible Julian Stringle on clarinet, the flamboyant Nick Millward on drums, Craig Milverton on piano and Ashley Long on bass, who must have 20 fingers to play that fast.”

“The many visitors to the village enjoyed the beautiful weather, the charm of the Tuckers’ Arms, and the temptations of homemade cakes, contributed by ladies of the village and the barbecue run by the Dalwood Raft Club.”
