Bolton Food Festival 2019

by Deb Lyons

For the third year in a row, once again Eagley Band was chosen and invited by Bolton Council to entertain literally thousands of people who attended this year’s Food Festival on Sunday afternoon, August 25th.

With temperature records being broken throughout the UK on the August bank holiday weekend, we took to the stage at 2.30pm in 30C heat (shirts and straight ties being the order of the day!) and entertained a huge and very attentive crowd with an eclectic set ranging from O.R.B., Amazing Grace and Birdland to music by Genesis, Toto, Michael Buble and many others. Our featured soloist was Flugel Horn player Janet Walsh who performed a perfect Rodrigo Concerto di Aranjuez and our set also included When You Wish Upon A Star, How Far I’ll Go and concluded with Forget You without time to squeeze in Back To The Future as planned.

The crowds were really appreciative and a great afternoon was had by everyone.
