Our 4th event with Martyn Joseph and guests Tayo Aluko, Yvonne Lyon and Stewart Henderson.
Tayo Aluko
Tayu Aluko

Tayo Aluko is an award winning actor and baritone singer who has created the one man play “Call Mr Robeson” which is a roller coaster journey through Robeson’s remarkable and eventful life, and highlights how his radical activism caused him to be disowned and disremembered, even by the leaders and descendants of the civil rights movement.
He’s is a fascinating, inspring and and outstandingly talented artist who we are really looking forward to welcoming to the event.
Yvonne Lyon
Yvonne Lyon

Singer-songwriter Yvonne Lyon is among the best and brightest emerging talent currently from Scotland. Her most recent album, Ashes & Gold combines poignant lyrics with strong, creative melodies, demonstrating a voice that can be both fragile and intense.  As Bob Harris says, ’just stunning music’ and we know you’ll agree!
Stewart Henderson
Stewart Henderson

What can we say about poet, broadcaster and writer Stewart Henderson? PipeFest certainly wouldn’t be the same without him and he returns this year by popular demand to help host the event with Martyn and share his totally unique view of the world with us.

Friday evening pre-PipeFest gathering at Lancaster University
In previous years many folk have travelled up to Lancaster on Friday to stay overnight and make a weekend of the event, and from this a group of “PipeFesters” are arranging a gathering of like minded folk on Friday evening on campus at Lancaster university. The event is being hosted by Steve Pledger, and although not an official MJ.com event, we are very happy to support Steve with event and think its a great way to start the weekend,. It will be a very relaxed affair where you can meet up with other like minded folk and as part of the evening, they hope to arranger a very informal open mic session, so anyone is welcome to share songs, music and poetry if they would like to.  To find out more about the session, drop a line to Steve Pledger at stevepledger2008@btinternet.com
