“Good to see live music back in the lower Demesnes,” said music promoter Dave Palmer.

It was a sentiment shared by many as a host of performers entertained large crowds on both days of the meet.

The Hub’s studio manager Tom Whittaker ensured the sound was at its best for the nine acts that performed over the two days.

The acoustic duos kicked off the entertainment on both afternoons with the Meet one of eight gigs booked for Jubilee weekend by the Audios on Friday.

Saturday’s musical program began with a performance by the Little Bigs Acoustic Duo, featuring Barney’s Rebecca Hosey, who has just completed her music degree at Durham.

They were followed on stage by another local band, About the Humans, with Andy Yeadon.

The band presented tracks from their upcoming album, which is currently being recorded.

The Waynes, another popular local band, were part of the lineup which also included Vic Bainbridge and Red Room.

Between acts on the main stage, an open mic was available for anyone who wanted to play a tune, led by renowned blues musician and President of Bishop FM, Gary Grainger.
