About Cleveland where our live musicians perform
Covering Party Bands, String Quartets, Barn Dance / Ceilidh and Jazz
Towns, cities and regions, such as Cleveland have an influence on the style of music, whether it is the 'English Countryside' feel of Vaughan Williams, the strength of Elgar's Victorian Malvern, or the skirl of Northumbrian Pipe tune.
The Cleveland Way traveller will come across an astonishing amount of historical sites and landscapes as they journey along the National Trail. High on the moors the shapes of stone and bronze age burial sites can still be seen. Along the coast are the sites of the Roman signal stations. These watchtowers sent signals by smoke or beacon to warn against enemies approaching from the sea. There is a wealth of Abbeys and Castles along the Way. Within the first few miles alone you will have passed Helmsley Castle and the incredible ruins of the 800 year old Rievaulx Abbey.
