Music on the Isle of Arts

The Isle of Arts festival is due to get underway in just over a month, so we thought we'd highlight some worthwhile music acts for you to tap your toes to. Our beloved island is home to some serious musical talent, and this is reflected in the pubs, theatres and concerts throughout this very special time of the year. So take your pick of the best below and enjoy yourself this May.

Folk Fest

The Boathouse in Ventnor will play host to some fine folk music from May 2nd, with plenty of musicians slated to appear in what will undoubtedly go down as the knees-up of the season. Hosted by local maestro Becky Haydock, the tunes are likely to set the joint jumping. So pull up a chair, get the beers in and enjoy the sounds. Folk Fest gets going at 9pm and tickets are priced at £5.

Tenors Un Limited - An evening with "The Rat Pack of Opera"

The Rat Pack of Opera is possibly not a phrase most people would put together. And it it (del) so aptly describes the UK's original classical-crossover 'man band' that you won't be able to think of them any other way. Blending musical theatre, pop, opera and some original material that simply refuses to be categorised, the three gents engage in witty banter throughout the show between performing with powerful vocals and a rich harmony. A marvellous experience and it's taking place at the Isle of Arts Marquee in Salisbury Gardens on May 3rd.

Blues Bash

If you like your quavers swung and your tunes mellow, come along to the Boathouse on May 4th from 9:30pm until 11:30pm. This blues-filled evening promises to round off the Isle of Arts festival in style, and while details of the musicians have yet to be released, you can be sure the talent will be second to none.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801707935-ADNFCR
