Acoustic Gathering 2012 – Sunday

On the 8th and 9th of September, Peasholm Park in Scarborough was transformed into the venue for the yearly ‘Acoustic Gathering’. Unlike other years this ran over two days, and if you saw my previous post you’ll know that Saturday was headlined by ‘The Lightning Seeds’.

Here you’ll find some of the best photos from the Sunday, which was jam packed with local and national musicians, kids activities and great food and drink.

Take a look at the full collection of photos right here.

Acoustic Gathering 2012 – Saturday – The Lightning Seeds & More

Last Saturday (8th of September) saw the return of Acoustic Gathering to Peasholm Park in Scarborough. This year it took a slightly different take and spiced us up a little by having an evening of music the night before the 11 hours of mayhem on the following day.

The AG team welcomed the weekend by giving us three bands for a deliceous £15 – bargain. Topping the bill was an acoustic set from the classic 90′s Britpop band ‘The Lightning Seeds’, with support from ‘Chris Helme’ and ‘Mark Stanley & The Field Notes’.

Here’s a handful of some of the best concert shots of the night. Got to the archive to find some more.

Except for Access – Surface Festival Regional Showcase – Manchester Academy 3

Scarborough based ‘Except for Access’ successfully passed through to the Regional Showcase of Surface Festival last month.
Last night, (1st September) was there final chance to book a ticket down to the finals in London.

The three piece asked me to join them on their trip over to Manchester Academy, and to get some live photographs
of their performance to use in an upcoming EP sleeve. Here are some of the best images from the night, but you can view more right here.

The journey was well worth it though, as the Yorkshire trio secured their place in the International Showcase and will be heading down to the London O2 later this month.
