Welcome to Minsteracres where we hope you'll enjoy a peaceful and entertaining evening performance of Christmas songs and carols in the company of Tynedale based singer-songwriter Gareth Davies-Jones. The event is part of his Christmas Acoustic Tour 2023.
Gareth says: "Every year I’ve been putting aside time in December to do some very special gigs on the theme of Advent and Christmas. Music has always been an integral part of the Christmas season for me, yet often the carols and songs drift by on a high street wave of over-familiarity that takes away the original potency and impact their writers intended. So, armed with fresh interpretations, arrangements and melodies, and with a little background on the writers themselves, I hit the road with some of the best known seasonal works. There’ll be a few singalongs and some musical surprises, but most of all the intent is to help people listen afresh and encounter the wonder and mystery that perhaps goes missing in an increasingly commercial incarnation of Christmas."
Tonight's concert will be presented in The Ballroom at Minstreacres. Please drive up to the house where there is plenty of parking available and use the main entrance to the building where you will be directed to the venue.
A bar will be available (card or cash) serving mulled wine, mince pies and a selection of drinks. PLEASE NOTE: Doors open at 7.00pm and the music will begin at 7.30PM. Thank you.
