Emerge Festival 2013

Good news for music lovers is that Derbyshire`s Emerge Festival,  will be taking place this year, on Sun 23 June 2013.

Emerge is a daytime event that prides itself on it`s musical diversity and takes place at Shipley Country Park. It`s future has been in some doubt for a while, and for quite a time now it has only taken place once every two years.

For this year at least, Emerge has been moved forward to co-incide with Shipley Park`s annual Open Day.

Past festivals have provided lucky punters with the chance to hear a range of music, with one year being especially memorable  for a headlining performance by jazz singer Helen McDonald, an artist I have seen live many times and who turned in an excellent set despite the disadvantage of having to appear late afternoon as the event was coming to a close.
