Acoustic Music Sessions at 1550ft

Unplugged, informal and atmospheric music gigs in a remote mountain setting.

We started holding gigs here shortly after moved in a little over two years ago, partly because living in such a remote location, we missed seeing live music. We soon realised that this remote location and the fact that everyone, including the band, had to walk to get to the gig, made for a pretty special atmosphere. The acoustics of our traditional common room, with it’s low ceiling, turned out to be surprisingly good too.
