VIDEO: Memorable performance from Rhythm Stix

It may be a festival known for its high-quality overseas performers, but Northumberland-based group Rhythm Stix proved popular at the recent Alnwick International Music Festival.

The drumming act, from the town’s Pottergate Centre for people with learning and physical disabilities, gave a performance to remember of Louis Armstrong’s What A Wonderful World.

Alnwick’s Common Bellman John Stevens said the rendition left him with a lump in his throat – and he wasn’t the only one!

The curtain came down on the eight-day music festival on Saturday and home-grown acts like Rhythm Stix were part of the line-up which also featured overseas groups from Ghana, Belgium and America.
