REVIEW: Blackwood Gathering 2016

As we were sponsoring this year's event we decided to try - albeit in vain -  to place more emphasis on coverage and less on whisky consumption and to put together a highlight video from all of the goings on. With tickets being so limited and always selling out quickly we wanted to show those who have never been able to enjoy everything Blackwood has to offer just what they’re missing out on. From the duck taped, incense filled character of the main stage to the captivating rituals of Barry of the Blackwood, join us at Fell Foot!

ALBUM OF THE MONTH-MAR '17

Artist - Jesters of Destiny
Title - The Sorrows That Refuse to Drown
Label - Ektro

Thirty years after Jesters of Destiny arrived, dropped Fun at the Funeral and disappeared back into the night, they’re finally back with a second full length release courtesy of Ektro Records, and whilst it could never live up to first album, the eccentricity of the band shines through once more and it’s a crazy ride from start to finish. Pick it up on April 4th!
