THE 14th annual Snaithfest brought music to the ears of festival goers this weekend.
The three day music festival attracted dozens of bands from around the country to the Bell and Crown Pub in Snaith with this year’s focus mainly on young talent.
Organiser Chris Miley, who has been involved in every year of the festival, said: “It was an excellent weekend and we have had lots of positive comments.
“We had some great performances including the last ever one from Colour and the Kids as two of their members are going off to study music.
“After their performance someone came up to me and said they had been drinking at the pub for the last 10 years and they were the best band they had seen there.”
The pub in Market Place, Snaith was packed full of people every night with a mix of music styles varying from motown to indie.
And it was some of the younger stars, who Chris had taught over the years, who proved to be most popular.
Singer Molly Curtis, 15, had written her first ever songs for the festival, with them going down well with the audiences.
Other young performers included The Experiment – winners of the Selby Town Hall Battle of the Bands 2012, and musicians Matthew Barras and Matty Lenklater, who performed with different bands on all three days of the festival.
Music lovers who attended any of the days were treated to bands for free and plans are already being made for next year’s festival which is hoped will be the largest to date, celebrating 15 years since the musical celebration started.
It is also hoped a monthly acoustic night will be introduced at the pub over the coming months to give music fans regular live music and the chance to take part in open mic events.
