Powderham Live! – Another Triumph

November 9, 2019

thf_powderhamlive1Last weekend, 30 young musicians – solo singers, groups and bands – performed at Powderham Live! the brilliant creation of the Countess of Devon, A J Langer and a dedicated team including Kevin Ward, Robin Brown of The Cave, trustees of The Helen Foundation and Powderham Castle staff. With auditions, coaching and supported practice – all free to the young people involved – performers were then given the opportunity to perform in one of England’s finest music venues – the iconic Regency Music Room at Powderham Castle.

thf_powderhamlive2What a brilliant weekend it was, with some young people performing for the first time in front of an audience and alumni from previous years in a wonderful supportive role. Such energy, enthusiasm, creativity and risk-taking. It was real privilege to have been there.

Congratulations to all involved in bringing this event to fruition and especially the young musicians who so impressed us all. Go forward, everyone, and continue to love your music-making and writing.

Roll on Powederham Live 2020!
