We watched a great concert on 7th June. They are mainly young musicians but very professional. Not just Mandolins but guitars and Double basses. They played a great melody of pieces that we could tap along too. Great concert.More

Although tickets are quite pricey there is satisfaction in supporting this group of mainly young and enthusiastic musicians. It was a superb event and definitely worth the money, and the concert hall is a surprise too.More
