Heart of Ash - Solfest Community Musical 2013
By Solfest HQ, 02 March 2013 –
This year's Solfest community musical is going to be a celebration of one of our finest native trees - the Ash tree. We only just found out that Aspatria, the town nearest the festival site, actually is named after 'Ash Patrick', the tree of the fella who drove the snakes out of Ireland. That, added to the fact that Ash die-back is proving such a threat to one of our best-loved native trees, meant there's no better reason to celbrate the Ash tree in 2013. Come and join us on the Drystone Stage for the second instalment of Solfest's tradition of 'community musicals'.

If you're coming to Solfest, you can learn the material at vocal and instrumental workshops over the Solfest weekend 23rd - 25th August and join us on the Drystone Stage for the performance on Sunday 25th evening.
