Muker Silver Band open the Swaledale Festival 2017

The perennially popular Muker Silver Band opened the 2017 Swaledale Festival last night, playing in their usual practice spot of Muker Public Hall. Being a rather loud band however, even people wandering several hundred metres away could hear them playing, and a few people did stop for a while outside to listen.

The Muker Silver Band are 120 this year, with a special concert being held in Muker on October 21st to commemorate it, with proceeds going to charity.

Many thanks to events manager Chris Curry for helping change a car wheel during one song!
