The Haar will be performing at Costa Del Folk’s As You Like It Festival in Warwickshire this August!

About the festival:

The AS YOU LIKE IT FESTIVAL ….. A summer garden festival with a difference!

Home for this four-night, three-day summer garden festival, is the stunning 16th Century Walton Hall, nestled in 65 acres of beautiful English countryside, just outside Shakespeare’s birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon.

Tucked away amidst woodland, with the River Dene running through the grounds, close to Warwick, Leamington Spa & Warwick Castle there is plenty to see and do.

It’s so easy to dip in and out of the festival and enjoy all that your 4* accommodation offers including ensuite bedrooms, spa and swimming pool, in-house bar and restaurant,  or simply enjoy relaxing in this stunning location.  Whatever you choose to do, whatever the weather, there is always a warm bed and en-suite bathroom waiting for you at the end of the day.

The onsite bedrooms, range from classic twin/double rooms situated in the more contemporary hotel & coach house, plus one & two bedroom apartments to lavishly furnished suites, some with luxurious free-standing bathtubs in the grade II listed Walton Hall.

So, for four nights and three days in August, save the date, book your room or camper pitch (see tab below), tell your friends and pack your bag. We will be ready and waiting to welcome you with warm smiles, a fantastic line-up and plenty of safe space to explore this stunning location whilst enjoying our boutique, SUMMER GARDEN FESTIVAL.

As You Like It takes you away from the usual pitfalls of UK Music Festivals – no muddy fields,  portaloos or having to set up the tent in the rain! Instead, you can expect dining in the brasserie , drinks in the bar, cooked English breakfast, comfy beds and much more!

If you’re not ready to book but have further questions then please email: info@harmonyvoyages.co.uk

About The Haar:

Innovative Anglo-Irish quartet The Haar matches the fresh talent of traditional Irish singer Molly Donnery with three of the most exciting instrumentalists on the folk and traditional music circuit: Cormac Byrne (Uiscedwr, Seth Lakeman), Adam Summerhayes and Murray Grainger (The Ciderhouse Rebellion, Words of a Fiddler’s Daughter), the band’s music is characterised by ‘live reactive composition’ – an improvised space from which Molly’s pure and unadulterated vocals can emerge, spontaneous and never to be repeated in exactly the same way.

Their eponymous debut was heralded as “a splendid balance of swirling instrumental magic and beautifully sung narratives” by Folk Radio UK, and new album Where Old Ghosts Meet brings more magic from a collection of songs that grew from a desire to explore old favourites, to dig into traditional Irish gems for new inspiration and insights and intuitively follow the spark of new ideas.

This is music that is not afraid to transcend borders. Born of the traditional musics that all members have grown up with and absorbed, it is unapologetic in pushing at the edges in order to create the band’s own unique and compelling sound. 

“We need more music like this; spontaneous, alive and affecting, The Haar will take you on a journey and have you appreciating the purest of life’s pleasures. Wonderful stuff.” Folk Radio UK.
